Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium high heat or about 400 degrees F. Place shrimp in a large resealable plastic bag or mixing bowl and set aside. Combine marinade ingredients in a small bowl; whisk until combined. Pour mixture over prepared shrimp, stir to coat and set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.

  • Separate lettuce leaves into 18 to 20 "cups." Rinse and pat dry; cover and chill until ready to serve. Spray grill with grill spray. Remove shrimp from marinade and discard marinade. Grill shrimp over medium direct heat for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until curled, firm and cooked through. Transfer cooked shrimp to a bowl. To assemble tacos, arrange chilled lettuce "cups," open side facing up on a serving platter. Spoon 3 shrimp into each lettuce cup, add a few avocado cubes, sprinkle with cheese, garnish with cilantro and serve immediately with lime wedges.

Tips

* Substitute 4 smaller heads Bibb lettuce instead of 4 large heads butter lettuce.
