Looking for some Taco Tuesday recipe inspiration, or something worthy of an epic Cinco de Mayo celebration? Here you go: crispy fried shrimp tacos topped with roasted garlic aioli, cabbage, mango, red onion and a generous drizzle of our popular cilantro-lime vinaigrette. Fresh, bright and satisfying with crunchy, succulent shrimp, this is the kind of taco that created the need for a taco emoji.

Chef Kati Lauffer on Food Writing, Deli Diligence and Career-Commencing Meals | Pop-In@Nordstrom Eats

Over the monthlong course of Pop-In@Nordstrom Eats–the current, culinary edition of our always-changing Pop-In Shop–we’ll be bringing you interviews and recipes from some of the best and brightest chefs around. This series is in participation with our own powerhouse restaurants division as well as Cherry Bombe magazine, the beautiful publication focused on women and food. 


Chef Kati Lauffer is a boss, frankly, ruling all Nordstrom restaurants in the western United States and Canada for the past eight years. In a giving mood, she hooked us up with two exclusive recipes: a smoky beet and lentil salad and perfect Korean-style tacos. We are grateful.

In case you ever meet her and want to buy her a gift to say thanks, she mentioned to us that she enjoys food made from pigs and ducks–especially when accompanied by a really good pinot noir.
