Cooking Utensils

Directions

  1. Shrimp: Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Rinse shrimp; pat dry. In a resealable plastic bag combine, olive oil, garlic, cumin, chipotle chili powder, and 1/4 tsp. salt; add shrimp. Seal bag and turn to coat shrimp; chill 15-30 minutes.
  2. Sauce: In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup sour cream, juice of 1 lime, 1/4 tsp chipotle pepper and 1/4 tsp salt; mix and set aside. Adjust the consistency by adding more lime (too thick) or more sour cream (too runny).
  3. Slaw: In a larger bowl combine the shredded cabbage and 3/4 of the sauce mixture. Leaving some for the topping.
  4. Remove shrimp from marinade; thread 3-4 shrimp onto each of 3 (8-inch) wooden or metal skewers. Place skewers on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray; top with any remaining marinade. Broil 5 inches from heat for 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done.
  5. To serve begin with a cabbage leaf or lettuce wrap, then add 1/2 lime slaw and shrimp. Sprinkle with your favorite toppings and top it all off with the remaining sauce and lime wedges.

 

Recommendations:

Training Day: swap the lettuce wrap for a Siete Almond Flour tortilla
