Zesty Shrimp Tacos With Slaw

This easy shrimp tacos recipe is made with zesty shrimp, avocado, mango, cabbage slaw, and creamy cilantro lime sauce.


For the Slaw and Shrimp Taco Sauce


  1. Rinse and pat the shrimp dry, then transfer to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with ½ tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with the rub and salt. Toss to coat evenly. Let rest while you prepare the shrimp sauce and slaw.
  2. Prepare the sauce and slaw: In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, process the Greek yogurt, olive oil, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, salt, lime zest, and vinegar. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Place the cabbage in a mixing bowl and toss with about ½ cup of the sauce. Add more sauce if you desire a creamier slaw, then reserve the rest of the sauce for serving.
  3. Cook the shrimp: In a large nonstick skillet over medium high, heat the remaining ½ tablespoon olive oil. Add the shrimp and sauté just until the shrimp is cooked through and no longer translucent in the center, about 4 minutes. If your shrimp are pre-cooked, only cook for 1 minute. Do not overcook! Transfer the shrimp immediately to a plate.
  4. Warm the tortillas (optional) and assemble the tacos: If you like, warm the tortillas in the microwave (put them in a stack and cover them with a lightly damp towel) or a 250 degree F oven while the shrimp cook. To serve, fill the tortillas with your desired number of shrimp, then top generously with the slaw, avocado, mango, extra sauce, and a squeeze of lime juice. Enjoy immediately.
