Shrimp Tacos

Oh, it has been a while. 

I'm home now, getting back into the swing of things around here again.  Back to my happy place, cooking. 

I made these a few nights ago and they came out pretty good.  I opted to broil the shrimp rather than bread and fry them in an attempt to make it healthier.  But we all know that fried would be more awesome.  ;)

Shrimp Tacos
- 1 1/2 pounds raw shrimp
- 3 cups shredded cabbage

- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- dash pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- handful of cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- dash cayenne pepper

Topping Sauce
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup salsa

Other taco ingredients:
Cilantro Lime Rice, recipe in this post
Black beans
Flour or Corn Tortillas

Mix all marinade ingredients together.  Toss cabbage with half the marinade in one bowl, combine raw shrimp with the other half of the marinade.  Put in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

Stir sour cream and salsa together, let sit in fridge.

Spray cooking sheet with nonstick spray and broil shrimp 4-8 minutes until done.

Fill tortillas. Eat.  Yum.
