  • 1 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Freshly Cracked Pepper
  • 1/2 Bag Coleslaw Mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
  • 3 Green Onions, sliced

Step 1.  Prepare Coleslaw

  1. To prepare the coleslaw dressing, mix together the mayonnaise, honey, Dijon, red wine vinegar, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper in a bowl. Place the coleslaw mix and sliced green onions in a bowl and add about 3/4 of the dressing. Stir until everything is coated in dressing, then add more dressing if desired. Refrigerate the slaw until ready to serve.

Step 2.  Prepare Smoky Garlic Lime Sauce

  1. To prepare the smoky garlic lime sauce, stir together the mayonnaise, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and the juice from half a lime (about 1 Tbsp) in a small bowl. Save the other half of the lime to serve as wedges with the finished tacos.

Step 3.  Toast the tortillas

  1. Heat a dry skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, toast the tortillas on each side until browned on the edges. Place the toasted tortillas on stacked on a plate and covered with a towel until ready to serve.

Step 4.  Dust Shrimp with Blackening Seasoning

Step 5.  Cook Shrimp

  1. Add the butter and minced garlic to a large skillet. Cook over medium heat for about one minute, or until the garlic is fragrant and slightly softened. Add the seasoned shrimp and sauté just until the shrimp is firm (about 3-5 minutes). Remove the skillet from the heat to prevent over cooking the shrimp.

Step 6.  Enjoy!
