This is one of our new favorite recipes! I've honestly never wanted to try shrimp tacos because they just didn't seem to go together, but after giving this recipe a try, we were floored over here at Jalapeno Madness and Chili Pepper Madness.
We got some new chili powders and decided to experiment. You'll really want to try this one.
1 large jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon chili powder (we used ground piquin for this recipe)
1 pound fresh shrimp, shells removed and deveined
2 limes, sliced
3 teaspoons sour cream
2 tablespoons mayo
2 cups shredded cabbage
6 corn tortillas
1 tablespoon butter
garlic to taste
1/2 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
For the Sauce: In a small bowl, mix chili powder, mayo, and sour cream. Set aside. For the tacos: Brush shrimp with butter and garlic. Grill or pan fry over medium heat until shrimp is tender and pink throughout.
Warm tortillas in a microwave or over the stove 2-3 minutes. Serve shrimp over tortillas with a teaspoon of sauce. Garnish with jalapeno peppers, cabbage, cheese and fresh lime juice.
