Shrimp Tacos with Guacamole and Slaw

I seem to be featuring a lot of seafood lately. Probably because my husband does the “man cooking” (aka grilling) in the summer and I don’t cook as much.

I found this Baja-Style Shrimp Tacos recipe in Family Circle and it looked delicious! My cabbage mix wasn’t quite so colorful, and I didn’t use prepared guacamole, but this has become an easy favorite for quick summer meals!

Shrimp Tacos

marinade and dressing
1/3 c cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1/4 c fresh lime juice
1/4 c olive oil
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp pepper

1 lb cleaned medium shrimp
4 c finely shredded cole slaw mix
1 package taco-size flour tortillas (8 per package)
1 c prepared guacamole (I used half an avocado and mixed it with some fresh salsa. Yum!)

Marinade and Dressing: in a small bowl, whisk all ingredients together.

Tacos: Heat broiler to high. In medium-size bowl, combine 1/4 cup o the marinade and the shrimp. In a second medium bowl, combine remaining marinade and the cole slaw mix. Let both marinate for 10 minutes.

Transfer shrimp to a broiler pan. Broil, 2-3 inches from heat, for 6-7 minutes, turning once.

Spread a tortilla with about 2 tbsp guacamole. Top with 4-5 shrimp and 1/4 cup slaw. Repeat with all ingredients.
