Dad's Baja Shrimp Taco's

My dad is an amazing cook. 
 I had to wake up at 7:00 to go to a volleyball tournament almost every weekend when I was a kid.
The only thing to look forward to that early in the morning was my dad's breakfast. 
He used to put the most random stuff together and it would turn out amazing? 
One of my favorite foods he would make were pancakes. 
He would put oatmeal and one bag of sweet n low in the batter. Weird, right?
Simply Amazing and Delicious! 
I was visiting him for lunch last week and he shared his new shrimp taco recipe with me!

...Of course I forgot my camera, My iphone did the best he could :(

Dad's Baja Shrimp Taco's
