These spicy shrimp tacos have a chipotle chili marinade for spicy smoky flavor and are paired with a creamy cilantro slaw for a quick 30 minute meal that is so flavorful and delicious.
In a large bowl, combine defrosted peeled and deveined raw shrimp with oil, pomegranate juice, chipotle chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin and salt. Stir to combine and coat well. Then cover and chill in the fridge till you're ready.
In a small food processor, combine the ingredients for the creamy cilantro sauce (not the coleslaw mix), blend till smooth, and place in the fridge to chill.
Tortillas can be covered in tin foil and heated in the oven for 5 minutes at 350 or, if you have a gas grill or stovetop, you can toast them over the open flame about 30 seconds per side using tongs (and WATCHING CAREFULLY) to get a nice char. If microwaving, cover with a damp paper towel and heat in 15 second increments.
Heat a large pan over medium high and add marinated shrimp with all of the sauce. Make sure all the shrimp are in one layer. Cook for 2-3 minutes on the first side, then flip the shrimp and cook another 2-3 minutes until cooked through and light pink. Quickly toss the coleslaw mix with the creamy cilantro sauce, and fill the tortillas with the shrimp and slaw!
