Garlicky Tacos

Updated: Feb 7, 2021



Serves 4

Ingredients for the garlic cilantro lime sauce: 1/4 cup oil 1/4 cup water

1/2 cup chopped green onions 1/2 cup cilantro leaves 2-3 cloves garlic 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 T fresh lime juice

1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt

Ingredients for the tacos: 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed or for vegetarians—tofu, beans, or a bag of Quorn brand “chicken chunks” from the frozen section near Boca burgers and other faux meat 1 teaspoon each chili powder and cumin 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste) 2-3 cups shredded green cabbage 8 small corn tortillas, hard shells, or bibb lettuce leaves 1-2 avocados 4 oz. Cotija (Mexican soft) cheese

Additional cilantro for topping lime wedges for serving

Instructions:

  1. Stir all the sauce ingredients except the sour cream. When mostly smooth, add the sour cream and stir until combined. Taste and adjust as needed. Set aside.

  2. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat the protein dry with paper towels and sprinkle with the spices. Add to the hot pan and sauté for 5-8 minutes, flipping occasionally, until cooked through.

  3. Toss some of the sauce (not all) with the cabbage until it the cabbage is coated to your liking. It should resemble a coleslaw – you want it to be enough sauce so the cabbage is weighed down a little bit. Use the leftover sauce on top of the tacos or in other recipes.

  4. To serve tacos, smash a spoonful of avocado on the tortillas, top with a few pieces of protein, top with coleslaw, and finish with Cotjia cheese, cilantro, and lime wedges.
