These grilled shrimp tacos will be your new favorite Taco Tuesday dinner! Juicy shrimp are marinated with lime juice, garlic, and spices, then grilled to perfection and tucked into soft tortillas with a creamy sauce.
For the Grilled Shrimp: Large or extra-large shrimp Garlic Lime juice Ground cayenne Smoked paprika Ground cumin Butter Olive oil Salt Black pepper
For the Sauce: Mayonnaise Greek yogurt Hot sauce Onion powder
Rinse and pat the shrimp dry.
Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a large bowl and add the shrimp, tossing to coat.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the shrimp marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge.
Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and thread the marinated shrimp onto wooden skewers. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the shrimp turns pink.
Remove the shrimp tails and place the shrimp on the tortillas, then top with cabbage or coleslaw, radish, red onion, cilantro, cheese, and spicy mayo.
