Ingredients

1/4 cup oil

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/2 cup cilantro leaves

2 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

juice of 2 limes

1/2 cup sour cream or full-fat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup water (if needed, to thin sauce)

2 teaspoons each chili powder and cumin

1/2 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)

1 teaspoon coarse sea salt

1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed

2-3 cups shredded green cabbage

8 small tortillas (corn or flour)

2 avocados

1/4 cup Cotija cheese

lime wedges for serving

Directions

Sauce

Pulse all the sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender until mostly smooth. Add water if needed to thin.

Slaw

Toss some of the sauce (not all) with the cabbage. We’ll use the leftover sauce to top the tacos.

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 sauté for 5-8 minutes, flipping occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through.

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.
