Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Siggi's or Icelandic plain yogurt (1/2 small container)
  • 2 tablespoons sweet thai chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoon green onions, diced
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1/2 pound shrimp (raw or cooked - peeled and deveined)
  • 4 gluten free corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage

Cooking Utensils

  • small mixing bowl
  • cast iron or non-stick skillet
  • baking sheet (oven method)

Directions

Marinade:

In a mixing bowl combine the yogurt, sweet thai chili sauce, green onions and sriracha. Whisk until well combined. Give a taste and if you need more spice, just add more sriracha. For a thicker sauce add 1 tablespoon of mayo. Set aside.


Skillet method:

  1. Raw shrimp – Heat cast-iron skillet on high heat for 2 minutes. Add 1 tbsp olive oil (or butter) and shrimp. Turn heat down to medium and high and cook shrimp until they are pink and cooked through (about 2-3 minutes per side).
  2. Cooked (dethawed) shrimp) – only cook until warmed through.

Oven method:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Raw shrimp – place shrimp on skewers and bake for 12 minutes (flipping halfway through). Cooked (dethawed) shrimp – place shrimp on skewers and bake for 5-8 minutes until warmed through.
  3. For a golden crust broil on high for 2-3 minutes.

Assemble:

  1. Brush cooked shrimp with the marinade.
  2. Prepare your tortillas to your liking. I toasted them on high heat with zero oil or spray in my cast iron.
  3. Layer your tacos and enjoy!
