Taste it: Festive Shrimp Tacos

Happy Cinco de Mayo...well, a day late. If you've read the blog for a bit and followed my recipes then you already know that we love tacos in our house! So without further ado, here is an amazing, tasty recipe for shrimp tacos with a creamy slaw.  I marinated the shrimp in a coconut mango marinade purchased from Whole Foods and cooked them on the grill which makes this a super fast meal to get on the table.

1-11/2 lbs of raw shrimps, peeled and deveined
Whole Foods Coconut Mango marinade from the fish counter or make your own!
corn tortillas
4 cups shredded green and purple cabbage
1/2 cup shredded carrots
small red onion, sliced very thinly or scallion
1 jalapeno, minced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 Tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
salt and pepper
1 mango, diced (I prefer Champagne mango)
1-2 avocado, diced and dressed with lime juice

Marinade the shrimp and soak your skewers, if using wooden ones. Shred the cabbage and mix the carrots, jalapeno, and red onions. Mix together the mayo, sour cream, honey, lime juice, cumin, chipotle powder, salt and pepper. Pour over the cabbage, carrots, jalapenos, onion or scallions and fresh cilantro, stir to coat. Set aside in the refrigerator.  Grill the shrimp until firm and pink. Either fry your own tortillas (the best!) or use store bought. Serve with freshly diced mango, diced avocado and in our house Tabasco hot sauce! Enjoy with a cold beer.
