    2. GSTshrimpIn a large bowl, combine shrimp marinade ingredients. Add the shrimp and toss to combine. Let shrimp marinate while the grill is heating. Don’t let it sit too long or the lime juice will start to cook the shrimp.

      Thread the shrimp on the wooden skewers. Grill 2-3 minutes per side or until shrimp are not opaque. You can also cook these on the stove in the skillet if you don't have a grill.

      Warm tortillas on the grill or in the microwave.

      Assemble tacos by placing some chopped cabbage and 3 warm shrimps in each taco with avocado salsa on top. Top with Cotija or feta cheese. Serve with lime slices.

       

    3. RECIPE NOTES

      Soak the wooden skewers in the water ahead of time to prevent burning.

      If you like corn tortillas you can use these here as well.

      For even more spice add some red pepper flakes!
