Shrimp Tacos

10 Corn Tortillas

1 Pound Shrimp (Peeled and Deveined)

2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Teaspoon Chili Powder

1 Teaspoon Cumin

1 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

 

For Slaw:

2 Cups Cabbage (Shredded)

½ Cup Fresh Lime Juice (Approximately 3 Limes)

1 Clove Garlic (Peeled and Crushed)

1 Small Jalapeno (Minced)

½ Cup Red Onion (Diced)

½ Cup Sour Cream

2 Tablespoons Milk

 

Optional (For Garnish):

1 Avocado

1 Cup Cilantro

 

  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine olive oil and seasonings for shrimp and mix into a paste. Toss the shrimp in the spice mixture until fully coated. Allow to sit and marinate 10 minutes or more before grilling shrimp on a cooktop or flame.
  2. Prepare ingredients for the slaw, chop and dice according to list. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until the vegetables are coated with sour cream and milk mixture. Add salt and pepper as needed to taste.
  3. Warm corn tortillas approximately 20 seconds per side on a hot pan or grill.
  4. Build tacos by putting the slaw in the middle of the tortilla first, then top with 3-5 shrimp per taco, depending on their size. If desired, finish with slices of avocado and sprigs of cilantro.
