  1. Mix lime juice, olive oil, chili powder, and mayonnaise together in a bowl. Add shrimp and marinade for at least 1 hour.
  2. Mix enchilada sauce, jalapenos, honey, lime juice, and salt together in a separate bowl for the sauce.
  3. Toss cabbage with scallions, olive oil, vinegar, and cilantro in a large bowl for the slaw.
  4. Heat tortillas in a frying pan over medium-high heat, about 30 seconds per side. Keep warm.
  5. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  6. Remove shrimp from marinade. Grill until opaque, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp to each tortilla; top with the sauce and slaw.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Another way to make the chipotle sauce is with 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 5 teaspoons of minced chipotle peppers in adobe sauce. I couldn't find chipotles in adobo sauce in our local grocery, so I improvised with what they had and it was great!

Made as written and this turned out good. My only complaint is in the sauce. It's a little too sweet and it is really thin. I used an enchilada sauce imported from Mexico because I love the flav...

Really tasty! Substituted the jalapeno for poblano and scallions for shallots.

Yes I made it and more than likely will again.
