Summer is finally upon us! The kids are out of school, the grass is green and the days are long and hot. Long days full of wonderful memories as we soak up the amazing weather and store it for those long winter months!

Are you singing songs of praise like me? I was so ready for this weather and I’m hoping it stays around long, long time!

The summer months are upon us and I’m ready to #CoastIntoSummer and soak it all up. Every last minute and moment of it. I’m going to need it come January.

How do you #CoastIntoSummer?

For me it’s pretty simple, yet pretty full of things. There’s always the summer breezes off the lake shore that make me sigh and relax a little more. Then there’s the sounds of Miss K giggling as I push her in the swing. That’s followed by, “More Mommy More! Faster Mommy Faster!” One of my favorite things is Bon Fires and of course and epic S’more. I’m so glad that Miss K has shown a love of S’mores this year. I got to have a partner in crime!

Speaking of S’mores. Summer food is just so much fun too. I love getting that grill out for the first time in the spring and having a new cuisine on the menu again instead of comfort meals that the winter is always full of.  The summer is always full of fresh fruit and veggies straight out of the garden. It’s always a treat when these come into season!

I also love shrimp and all the amazing flavors it brings to my summer meals. Since I’m located in the midwest I depend on SeaPak to bring me my shrimp! Did you know they are the nation’s #1 selling brand of frozen seafood? I only trust the best!

I created this amazing Popcorn Shrimp Tacos with Corn Salsa and Cilantro Lime Sauce using SeaPak’s Frozen Popcorn Shrimp. I know you are thinking that it sounds so complicated with that long of a title and that many flavors right? Well, actually, you are totally wrong! You know how I love to focus on easy meals for you and your family and this one is no different.

You can make it even faster by prepping the salsa and cilantro lime sauce the night before. When you get home from work the next, literally all you have to do is prepare the shrimp and the dinner table! I’m talking 15 minutes people so you can get outside and enjoy that summer weather with your family! These tacos are piled with crunchy popcorn shrimp, then you have the burst of corn and tomato salsa, topping it off is the creamy, dreamy cilantro sauce.

Your taste buds will explode from happiness!
