Ingredients

Shrimp

  • 1 pound (~45) medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, separated

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (or use additional olive oil)

  • 1-2 fresh limes

  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage

  • 1 large avocado

  • Corn (or flour) tortillas

 

Cilantro Lime Sauce

  • 1 lime juiced and zested (3 tablespoons juice + 1/2 teaspoon zest)

  • 1-2 cloves garlic add to desired preference, minced

  • 1/2 of a large bunch of cilantro

  • 1/2 jalapeno (or 1 full jalapeno for a spicier dressing)

  • 1/2 cup regular full fat mayo

  • 1/2 cup sour cream, I use fat-free

  • Optional: olive oil cooking spray

Instructions

Shrimp

  1. Pat both sides of the shrimp dry and then gently toss in a large bowl with the garlic, salt, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Cover and place in the fridge while preparing the rest of this dish (at least 15 minutes and up to overnight).

  2. In a large skillet (if you don't have a big enough skillet to cook all the shrimp in a single layer, separate this process AND the butter + olive oil into 2 parts), melt butter and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil.

  3. Add shrimp in a single layer and saute until they just turn pink, flipping shrimp over halfway through, 2 to 4 minutes depending upon their size. Remove from heat and set aside to a cutting board. Cut off the tails. If desired, add a squeeze of fresh lime juice to the shrimp.

 

For the Cilantro Lime Sauce

  1. Zest and juice 1 lime to get 3 tablespoons juice and 1/2 teaspoon zest. Add the juice and zest to a powerful blender or mini food processor along with the minced garlic, cilantro, 1/2 of the seeded jalapeno (add more of the jalapeno for a spicier sauce, add slowly if you're worried about the heat), and mayo. Add salt and pepper to taste and blend or pulse until smooth. Add in the sour cream and pulse once more to combine.
