you can eat this as a taco too, i just decided to cut out some of those yummy starches and replace them with more protein and vegetables


  • 1 lb shrimp - deveined 
  • salsa of your preference
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 limes 
  • 1 jalepeño - or less depending on your preference
  • plain greek yogurt
  • red & green cabbage - buy pre-shredded if you can
  • paprika
  • chili powder
  • cayenne powder
  • salt & pepper 
  • avocado & cheese - for toppings 
  • corn tortillas - or flour 

Thaw shrimp according to instructions and make sure all veins and tails are removed

In a bowl, marinade shrimp with olive oil, juice of 1 lime, 1 or 2 spoonfuls of salsa, and refrigerate for 15 minutes

While the shrimp is marinading, mix some greek yogurt, juice of 1/2 a lime, chopped jalepeño, and dashes of cayenne, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper

i have zero tolerance for spicy foods so i cut out the inside of the pepper and made sure all the seeds were out

Mix together shredded cabbage and yogurt sauce to make the cole slaw. Refrigerate slaw until ready to assemble the tacos/taco salad

you can add some salsa to the cole slaw too, if you’re feeling fiesty

Grill the shrimp - they cook/heat up fairly quickly, so a couple minutes on each side should do

In a bowl, combine cole slaw and shrimp and top with some more salsa. If desired, add slices of avocado and shredded mexican cheese blend and some slices of tortilla. Enjoy :)

i had bought two beautiful avocados and completely forgot i had them until after i devoured this. talk about tragedy
