Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 16-ounce package coleslaw mix
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onion, green tops only, thinly sliced, about 3 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon barbecue seasoning
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 lb shrimp, medium sized (26–30), peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons adobo seasoning
  • 6 8-inch flour tortillas
  • canola oil, for frying

Preparation

For Coleslaw:

In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, coleslaw mix, cilantro, green onions and barbecue seasoning. Mix well, then taste and adjust the seasoning, as needed. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.

For Tacos:

In a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, heat enough canola oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour and cornmeal; set aside. Season the shrimp with the adobo. Dredge the seasoned shrimp in the cornmeal mixture, and then add them to the hot oil 1 at a time. Fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the oil and drain on paper towels. Cook's Note: If you prefer, grill the shrimp for a lighter dish.

Heat a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add a tortilla, and heat for about 30 seconds on each side. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of slaw in the center of the tortilla, then put 4 or 5 fried shrimp on top and fold like a taco. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Notes

If making a low-fat version: substitute using light sour cream, light mayonnaise, whole-wheat tortillas and whole-wheat flour. Also, grill shrimp instead of deep-frying.
