  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonaisse

Instructions:

For the Salsa:
Finely chop shallot, jalapeño and garlic. Transfer mixture to medium bowl. Add chopped tomatoes, avocado, salt, lime juice and cilantro and stir to mix well.

For Zesty Yogurt Sauce:
In a small bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, red pepper sauce to taste with a dash of lime.

For the Shrimp:
Heat grill to medium.

In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper and shrimp. Stir until shrimp are well-coated.

Coat the grill with vegetable oil or non-flammable cooking spray.

Place shrimp on grill and cook until just white and orange, about 1½ to 2 minutes each side. Cover to keep shrimp warm.

Grill the tortillas until warm and slightly charred, about 20 seconds per side.

Spoon avocado salsa generously over warm tortillas, then top with 3 shrimp, cabbage and drizzle with zesty yogurt sauce. Serve lime wedges on the side.
