  • 8 small flour or corn tortillas
  • 1 lb shrimp fresh or frozen/thawed (approximately 20 shrimp)
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp dry rub
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 cup cabbage shredded (red and/or white)
  • 1/2 lb cherry tomatoes cut into quarters
  • 1 avocado cubed
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp Sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • Fresh chopped cilantro for garnish


  • Clean and peel the shrimp (if necessary), then pat dry.
  • Combine the flour and dry rub in a zip top bag. Add the shrimp and shake to coat.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp cooking oil. When the oil is hot, add the shrimp and cook for 3 minutes on each side, until they are crisp and browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  • Assemble and chop all of the vegetables and toppings.
  • Whisk together the mayo, Sriracha, garlic powder, and vinegar.
  • Heat the flour tortillas according to the package directions. Top each tortilla with shrimp, cabbage, tomatoes, avocado, green onion, and cilantro.
  • Drizzle with sriracha cream sauce and serve.


  • Size and weight of the shrimp needed may vary. I estimate 3-4 shrimps per taco for medium sized shrimp.
