A hint of lime and spices from the far east give these lightly grilled shrimp an exotic flavor

Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 9 mins

Ingredients:


  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 limes, cut into quarters
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 six-inch corn tortillas
  • 2 to 3 cups finely shredded green cabbage
  • Bottled green tomatillo salsa

Directions:

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.) 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.


Pull the shrimp off the skewers; divide evenly among the tortillas. Top with the cabbage, sour cream sauce, tomatillo salsa, and a squeeze of grilled lime.
