Ingredients
  • 24 pieces shrimp - peeled
  • 12 butter leaf lettuce leaves
  • 4 cups fresh jicama - peeled and cut/shredded small matchsticks (I use my small setting on a mandolin or a large grater)
  • 1 large mango - peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 1 large red pepper - cut into thin strips
  • ½ large carrot - peeled and cut into small matchsticks/large grate
  • ¼ large cucumber - skin on, cut into thin strips
  • Handful Cilantro - chopped
  • Sweet Chili Lime Dressing:
  • 4 tbsp fresh squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp honey (I use Spring Drizzle Honey, the best!)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ clove garlic - minced
  • 1-2 tsps jalapeno - diced finely (add more if you like heat)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Taco toppings of your choice: avocado, fresh tomato, cilantro, jalapeno, red onion, feta cheese etc, have fun with flavors!
Instructions
  1. Add all vegetables and fruit in large bowl to create slaw, toss in Sweet Chili Lime Dressing - this recipe makes a lot of slaw (6 cups), you will have extras!
  2. Save some of your dressing to marinade your shrimp in.
  3. Put shrimp on a skewer and BBQ until pink and cooked through - approximately 4 minutes per side for small shrimp.
  4. Assemble tacos, add slaw to each butter leaf, add shrimp, top with your favorite toppings.
  5. I used thinly sliced jalapeno, avocado, fresh tomato, red onion and slight drizzle of Bolthouse Mango Chipotle Dressing!
