Shrimp Tacos

Original Recipe from Gimme Some Oven

Yield: Makes 8-10 tacos

Time: Approximately 40 min

Description: Shrimp tacos with cilantro lime coleslaw, sliced avocado and a spicy chipotle crema

  1. Prep the slaw and crema: Prepare the cilantro lime slaw according to instructions. Combine all of the chipotle crema ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. (If you would like to skip the blender, just finely chop the chipotle in adobo sauce and stir it together with the other ingredients in a mixing bowl until evenly combined.  Or if you are using chipotle powder, you can definitely just stir the ingredients together by hand.)

  2. Cook the shrimp. In a mixing bowl, toss the shrimp with the taco seasoning, plus a generous pinch of salt and black pepper, until evenly coated.  Heat oil in a large non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Cook the shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes, flipping once, until they are opaque and cooked through.  Transfer to a clean plate and set aside.

  3. Assemble the tacos: Fill each flour tortillas with a generous serving of the slaw, a few slices of avocado, a few shrimp, a drizzle of chipotle crema and sprinkle of your favorite toppings.
