Tonight's dinner was a bit of a fun adventure. It was inspired by an interesting recipe from Real Simple on MyRecipes.com called Grilled Shrimp Tacos. But we made so many changes and adjustments, I think we pretty much have our very own new recipe here.
Start by quartering a couple of limes and mincing a clove of garlic. Season 12 to 16 jumbo prawns with a prepared seafood rub by shaking gently in a sealed ziploc bag with spices. Stir fry all of the above in a hot cast iron pan until shrimp are light pink and no longer translucent.
Meanwhile shred some green cabbage and warm some 6 inch flour tortillas.
Prepare white sauce by mixing 1/2 cup plain yogurt with a Tablespoon of Horseradish and a Tablespoon of mayonnaise. Add a dash of yellow curry powder and a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin. Whisk together with a tablespoon or two of milk to desired consistency.
To prepare tacos, layer with 3 to 4 cooked shrimp, shredded cabbage, white sauce, green tomatillo salsa, and a squeeze of grilled lime.
