AuthorSunshine UrbaniakCategoryTotal Time25 mins

INGREDIENTS

Cilantro Lime Slaw
1 cup Sour Cream, lite
½ cup Mayonnaise
¼ cup Lime juice, about 2 limes
2 Garlic Cloves, pressed
2 tbsp Jalapeño, minced
1 ½ tsp Salt
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Honey
6 cups Red Cabbage, thinly sliced
¼ cup Cilantro, chopped
Shrimp
1 lb Shrimp, raw, tails off (about 24)
½ Lime, juiced
½ tsp Cumin
½ tsp Salt
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
12 Flour Tortillas, 4"
Cilantro and lime wedges for garnish

DIRECTIONS

1

Warm tortillas wrapped in foil in the oven or toaster set to low/warm. Marinate the shrimp with the lime juice, cumin, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside while you make the slaw.

2

Combine all the slaw dressing ingredients into a medium bowl and whisk together until smooth. In a large bowl, add the cabbage, cilantro, and 3/4 of the dressing, enough to coat, and mix well. Set aside. Reserve the rest of the dressing for shrimp.

3

Drain the shrimp. Heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add shrimp, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook just until pink and opaque, about 2-3 minutes. Add the warm shrimp to the remaining dressing and mix well to coat. Let sit for 5 min.

4

Assemble the tacos by layering the slaw first, topping each taco with 2 shrimp, making 3 tacos per serving. Garnish with cilantro and serve with a lime wedge.
