Recipe Tips

  • A shrimp's size is measured by the number of individual shrimp it takes to make up a pound. We used medium-size shrimp labeled 41/50 in this recipe, meaning there are between 41 and 50 of this size shrimp in a pound. The description of size can vary, depending on market.
  • If you want to add some extra zip to these tacos, try a drizzle of sriracha or your favorite hot sauce on top of the coleslaw.
