You might know this by now: I love tacos. I love classic American-style tacos with ground beef, shredded Cheddar, lettuce and tomato (the kind I eat every Saturday night). I love Grilled Pork Tacos. And I especially have a thing lately for Asian-style tacos, like the kind I get from local food trucks.

Not content to stop at Asian Short Rib Tacos, I also wanted to do an Asian-style taco with seafood. My friends at WORLDFOODS Fusion of Flavours were kind enough to send me a bunch of delicious stir-fry sauces. I immediately took a liking to their Thai Ginger Lemon Grass Stir-Fry Sauce, and these tacos were born.

Tacos are one of my favorite quick meals, because they’re so fast to put together. Especially when you use shrimp – even large shrimp cook super quickly! For these Thai shrimp tacos, I quickly stir-fried shrimp, chopped bok choy and sliced water chestnuts. Just before the shrimp were cooked through, I added a generous amount of the Thai Ginger Lemon Grass Stir-Fry Sauce.

The sauce had all of the elements necessary to make these shrimp super flavorful – I didn’t even need to mince my own garlic or ginger (which I love, because I kind of hate mincing). The shrimp had a nice ginger bite with a background of mild lemongrass flavor. I tucked the shrimp mixture into corn tortillas, and topped it with some chopped scallions and bean sprouts for crunch.
