Takodana Tacos

These shrimp tacos are calling to you.

Did you know there was this much green in the whole galaxy? Takodana is a vegetative wonderland, lush with forests, mountains, and lakes. This landscape provides everything you need for a delicious meal at Maz’s castle.

If you need a sanctuary to get away from your troubles on the Outer Rim, take some me-time and chow down on these fresh Takodana Tacos. Made from shrimp caught in Nymeve Lake, the savory spices are offset by mashed avocado and sweet Corellian apples. You wouldn’t think the flavors would work together but sometimes the most unlikely pairings make the best combinations.
