Grilled Shrimp Tacos

The Real Simple Magazine is a great magazine if you have not read one yet with lots of great recipes, home & organizing tips, etc… I found this grilled shrimp recipe in their magazine and decided to give it a go! You need a few simple INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
3 tablespoons of milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 pounds of large shrimp, peeled
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large garlic cloves, minced
4 limes, cut into quarters
kosher salt
corn tortillas
2 to 3 cups finely shredded green cabbage
bottled green tomatillo salsa

Heat grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, and cumin. Set aside.
Skewer the shrimp. (If using wood skewers, soak them in water for 10 minutes beforehand.) I just used the indoor griddle and it worked the same as the grill. In a small bowl, combine the butter and garlic. Brush the shrimp with the garlic butter.
Place the shrimp on grill with the limes. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until the shrimp are opaque and the limes are browned.
Remove from grill. Lightly salt the shrimp.
Grill the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side, then place inside a paper bag to keep warm.
Divide shrimp evenly among the tortillas. Top with the cabbage, sour cream sauce, tomatillo salsa, and a squeeze of grilled lime.
I also made a few with diced red bell pepper, jalapeno, and mango … just adds a hint more of flavor!
