  • Chef notes

    These shrimp tacos are bursting with flavor in each and every bite. The smoky grilled shrimp, crunchy slaw and bright lemon mayo make for a wonderful taste combination. Note that this recipe makes extra slaw and lemon mayo. 

    Technique tips: Slice cabbage as thinly as possible.

    Swap option: Serve with grilled chicken or grilled salmon instead of shrimp.

    Preparation

    For the coleslaw:

    1.

    Shave cabbages finely with a knife.

    2.

    Combine the sliced cabbage and carrots in large bowl.

    3.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the tartar sauce, sugar and vinegar.

    4.

    Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and mix thoroughly.

    5.

    Refrigerate until ready to use.

    For the tacos:

    Spread the guacamole in the middle of the tortillas. Add pico de gallo, a small mound of coleslaw, grilled shrimp and jalapeños. Drizzle with lemon mayo and serve.
