  • 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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Place shrimp on grill and let cook for 2 minutes per side. Pull off once done.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Serve & enjoy!
