1/2 cup thinly sliced red pepper

1/3 cup red onion, chopped

1 lime, juiced

1/3 cup cilantro

1/8 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp salt

Shrimp Taco Sauce

1 cup chopped onion (or 1 cup green onion, chopped)

1 cup cilantro leaves, rinsed, chopped

1 Avocado – peeled, pit removed and diced

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tsp salt

4 limes, zest and juice

1 cup sour cream

1/2 medium jalapeno, chopped

1 medium head of cabbage for 2 cups shredded (may not be the whole cabbage)

Warm and brown tortillas

1 package medium flour tortillas

1 Tbsp oil


Step 1: In a medium bowl, peel and marinate shrimp with spices listed. Cover and refrigerate while making the other parts of the recipe.

Step 2: In a separate medium bowl, combine ingredients for Mango Salsa. Set aside.

Step 3: In a separate medium bowl, combine ingredients for Shrimp Taco Sauce. Using an immersion blender or regular blender, blend until smooth. Set aside.

Step 4: Combine 2 Tbsp Taco sauce with shredded cabbage and set aside.

Step 5: In a large pan, heat the oil on medium heat. When hot, add the flour tortillas, one at a time. Brown on each side, remove from pan and make as many as needed. We usually make 8 of them. Add extra oil as needed.

Step 6: Cook shrimp: Over medium heat, add shrimp in batches and cook on both sides, about 30 seconds each until shrimp is slightly curled.

To assemble the tacos, place a tortilla on a large plate. Spread taco sauce on the bottom. Place cabbage mixture on top of this, add quantity of shrimp desired and Mango Salsa on top. Fold and enjoy!
