Swaps. I have gone with avocado, shredded red cabbage, onion, and plenty of taco sauce for my toppings. You can mix and match with your own favourite ingredients.
Warm. If you like your taco warm, then I recommend a 1 minute cook time (after the shrimp has come out) in the air fryer at the same temperature as the shrimp.
