I Found the BEST Shrimp Tacos Recipe

I cook a lot and when I stumble upon a really good recipe I have to share so here's one for Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Garlic Cilantro Lime Slaw!

  • 1/4 cupwater
  • 1/2 cupchoppedgreen onions
  • 1/2 cupcilantro leaves
  • 2clovesgarlic
  • 1/2 teaspoonsalt
  • juice of2limes
  • 1/2 cupsour creamorfull-fat Greek yogurt
Shrimp taco spice mix:
  • 2 teaspoonseachchili powderandcumin
  • 1/2 teaspooneachonion powderand garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspooncayenne pepper(more or less to taste)
  • 1 teaspooncoarse sea salt
Stuff for the shrimp tacos:
  • 1lb.shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
  • 2–3cups shreddedgreen cabbage
  • 8smalltortillas(corn or flour)
  • avocados,Cotija cheese, andlime wedgesfor serving


  1. Sauce:Pulse all the sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender until mostly smooth.
  2. Slaw:Toss some of the sauce (not all) with the cabbage. We’ll use the leftover sauce to top the tacos.
  3. Shrimp:Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Toss the shrimp in a small bowl with the spice mix to get it coated. Heat a drizzle of oil a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the shrimp to the hot pan and saute for 5-8 minutes, flipping occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through.
  4. Assembly: For the prettiest and easiest-to-eat assembly, go in this order: smashed avocado, slaw, and shrimp. Finish with Cotjia cheese, lime wedges, and extra sauce.
