Zesty Shrimp Tacos


Tacos:
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 lime (zest the outer peel and then juice)
    1 teaspoon cumin
    1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
    6 (8 inch) flour tortillas, heated according to package directions

Taco Dressing:
    ¼ cup mayonnaise
    ¼ cup sour cream
    1½ teaspoons fresh lime juice
    2 teaspoons taco seasoning
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped

Taco Garnish:
    1 lime
    ½ cup sour cream
    ¾ cup sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
    1 cup tortilla strips
    3 cups iceberg and romaine lettuce mix (chopped)
    Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Combine olive oil, lime juice, zest, and cumin in small bowl. Thread shrimp onto skewers; season with salt and pepper. Brush shrimp with marinade. Pour into a re-sealable plastic bag; seal the bag, squeezing out excess air. Refrigerate and marinate shrimp in mixture for 1 hour.
  2. Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, taco seasoning, onion powder, and cilantro in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the West Bend® Platinum Edition™ Grill/Griddle to 300°F. Grill shrimp until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side, brushing occasionally with lime mixture. Roughly chop shrimp.
  4. Combine taco dressing, sour cream, and shredded cheese. Spread mixture over each tortilla; top with shrimp, salad greens, and tortilla strips.
  5. Serve with your favorite toppings, such as diced tomatoes, salsa, sliced olives, and/or guacamole. Serve with a slice of lime on the side to squeeze over taco (optional).
