1
pound shrimp, fully peeled and deveined

Directions

1

Combine the juice of one lime, lime zest, tequila, chili powder, salt and 1 black pepper in a bowl. Add shrimp, cover and let marinate 30 minutes.

Hot Tip: Do not marinate longer than 30 minutes. The acid will begin to 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 sour cream and chili powder. Set aside.

4

Preheat your grill to high heat. While preheating, skewer your marinated shrimp.

5

Place skewers on the grill and cook for approximately 1-2 minutes per side. Remove from grill.

6

Add tortillas to the grill for 1 minute per side to make warm.

7

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.
