Taco Assembly
16-20
small soft flour tortillas
1
cup finely shredded green cabbage
1
cup finely shredded purple cabbage
1/2
cup sour cream
1
teaspoon chili powder
Directions
1
Combine the juice from 2 limes, the zest from 1 lime, tequila, 1 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper in a bowl with a lid. Add shrimp, cover and let marinate 30 minutes.
Hot Tip: Do not marinate longer than 30 minutes, as the acid will begin to cook and break down the shrimp.
2
For the salsa, combine pineapple, avocado, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno, juice of one lime and salt and pepper. Set aside.
3
Combine ½ cup sour cream and 1 teaspoon chili powder. Set aside.
4
Using a 4-inch round cookie cutter, cut circles out of the tortillas to create “mini” soft taco shells.
5
Preheat your Patio Bistro Electric Grill on high heat for 10 to 15 minutes. While preheating, skewer your marinated shrimp using wooden skewers that have been soaked for at least 10 minutes, or preferably, using Char-Broil’s Stainless Steel Skewers.
6
Place shrimp skewers on the grill and cook over medium-high for approximately 1-2 minutes per side, being careful not to overcook. Remove from grill.
7
Add tortillas to the grill for 1 minute per side to get nice grill marks and make tortillas warm and pliable.
8
Begin building tacos. Add a teaspoon or so of the sour cream mixture to the center of each tortilla. Spread it evenly and top with a bit of red and green cabbage. Top cabbage with 2 shrimp and a nice spoonful of the pineapple salsa. Serve immediately.
