No dinner fiesta will feel complete without these scrumptious grilled shrimp tacos. Save time by grilling the shrimp skewers while you mix up the fresh citrus and cabbage slaw.
1 pound fresh or frozen medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon finely chopped canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
12 6-inch corn tortillas
Fresh cilantro (optional)
Lime wedges (optional)
Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Rinse shrimp; pat dry. In a resealable plastic bag combine olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and 1/4 tsp. salt; add shrimp. Seal bag and turn to coat shrimp; chill 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, finely shred peel from lime; juice lime. For lime slaw, in a large bowl combine the lime peel, lime juice, cabbage, and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt; set aside. In a small bowl combine sour cream and chipotle pepper; set aside. Wrap tortillas in foil.
Thread shrimp on 10-inch metal skewers.* On a covered grill, grill tortilla packet directly over medium heat for 5 minutes; turning once. Add shrimp to grill; cook 5 to 8 minutes or until opaque, turning halfway through grilling. Remove tortilla packet from grill. Remove shrimp from skewers.
To serve, spread tortillas with sour cream mixture. Top with lime slaw and shrimp. Sprinkle with cilantro and pass lime wedges, if desired.
If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes before using.
