  • 1 lb of shrimp deveined
  • ½ cup of red cabbage chopped
  • ½ cup of white onion diced
  • ¼ cup of cilantro chopped
  • 1 tbsp of fine sea salt
  • 1 tbsp of chipotle powder
  • 1 tbsp of onion powder
  • 2 limes halved
  • Corn tortillas
  • Sour cream
  • Avocado sliced


  • In a bowl, add the shrimp, chipotle powder, onion powder, & fine sea salt. Squeeze one half of a lime on top, add a couple pinches of cilantro and mix thoroughly.
  • Use some Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal to light fire and let burn for 10-15 minutes. Once charcoal is white hot, push into one flat pile for direct grilling.
  • Place shrimp on grill and let cook for 2 minutes per side. Pull off once done.
  • When shrimp are done, place corn tortillas on grill for 30 seconds per side to heat up. Tip: Place 2 tortillas on top of each other and place on grill to. This will give you a crunchy outside with a soft inside.
  • Layer tacos with tortilla first, shrimp without tails, onions, cilantro, red cabbage, sliced avocado and sour cream if desired. Add lime wedges to the side for more flavor.
  • Serve & enjoy!
