Happy Cinco de Mayo friends! This meal is going down in history as my husbands favorite to date! He asked me three times if I had written down how I made it. I have a bad habit of creating meals and then forgetting how it all came together! Working on that.
Sometimes I wish I was that fun mom that set a themed table for every holiday! It would have totally pulled this all together! I always see posts of the most adorable themed meals and wish I had that talent! Reasons why I’m not a fashion/lifestyle blogger. Haha. What I can do is cook! So cook we do! Celebrating at our house means we are going to to eat and tonight we feasted! I’m grateful for the opportunity I have to feed my little family whole healthy holiday meals. Even if they are served on paper plates from last years Fourth of July BBQ! It’s the thought right? Tonight was one for the books! I hope this meal will bring your family around the table to make memories too! Xo
Honey-Lime Shrimp Tacos with Chipotle Slaw by Clean Eats & Treats
I enjoyed mine minus the tortilla and more like a power bowl which was just as tasty!
- 1 pound raw shrimp peeled and deveined
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 Tbsp raw honey
- 2 garlic cloves crushed
- Kosher salt
- Freshly cracked pepper
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups shredded tri color coleslaw mix
- 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
- 1 cup cilantro roughly chopped
- remaining chipotle mayo
- splash of lime juice
- kosher salt and pepper to taste
Peel and devein shrimp. Rinse under cold water, drain and set aside.
Add olive oil to a sauté pan and heat to medium.
Add shrimp, lime juice, garlic and honey to pan. Stir well.
Cook 2-3 minutes per side. The shrimp are done when they have turned bright pink and the flesh is opaque white, rather than translucent. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
Layer chipotle slaw, shrimp, a drizzle of honey, chipotle mayo, grilled pineapple guac and a squeeze of fresh lime juice on a corn or paleo tortilla. Enjoy!
Whisk mayo and adobo sauce together and set aside. Reserve 1/4 cup to top tacos and use remaining for slaw.
Combine all ingredients together and season to taste. Enjoy!
