BBQ Shrimp Breakfast Tacos


I finally got a new charger for my DSLR camera battery, so I finally was able to shoot a food video with more precision – and the clarity feels great. For the recipe, I decided to do something a little different and venture into the breakfast arena. After letting my mind wander, I landed on a breakfast taco that incorporated a fair amount of indoor BBQ elements. The recipe and instructions are below and the video is above.
