How To Make Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Salsa
You can’t go wrong with these grilled shrimp tacos, made with spicy-seasoned shrimp, flavorful avocado salsa, and tender tortilla, for a fiesta of flavors!
Make the Salsa:
Put the shallot, jalapeño pepper, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade and process until finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl.
Add the chopped tomatoes, avocado, salt, lime juice, and cilantro to the bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
Heat the grill to medium. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the olive oil, chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and shrimp.
Mix until the shrimp are evenly coated with seasoning. Grease the grill with a wad of paper towels dipped in vegetable oil or non-flammable cooking spray. Place the shrimp on the grill and cook, covered, for 1½ to 2 minutes per side until just opaque.
Place the shrimp on a serving platter and cover to keep warm.
Grill the tortillas for about 20 seconds per side until warm and slightly charred.
Fill each tortilla with a spoonful of the avocado salsa, 3 shrimp, and some red cabbage; pass the lime wedges and sour cream at the table. Enjoy!
