Pow, pow, pow! These Kung Pao shrimp tacos hit you in the best spots, the spots with flavor, texture, and a dinner that's chock full of excitement. Boy choy and shallot provide fresh vegetables, the slaw a brilliant crunchy texture, and the shrimp, the subtly sweet flavor of which has been winning the crustacean fans for centuries.
