    For the Shrimp:

    • 1½ pounds large or extra large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
    • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon sal y limon
    • dash cayenne pepper

    For Serving:

    • 8 - 10 six-inch corn tortillas
    • About 2 cups finely chopped cabbage
    • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
    • Lime wedges
    • 1 cup yogurt
    • 1 tablespoon mayonaisse
    • Red pepper hot sauce, to taste

    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.

    These tacos come together so wonderfully in part because of the vibrant, contrasting colors of the salsa and shrimp. The jalapeños and chili powder transform otherwise simple shrimp tacos.
    You can easily control the heat by removing the seeds from the peppers or omitting a pepper, and reducing the amount of chili powder. I tend towards the spicier side, but the shrimp is equally intriguing with a sweet peppadew salsa.
    Ingredients:
    For Salsa:
    1 avocado, cut into chunks
    4 tomatillos, husked and roughly chopped
    1 small red onion, roughly chopped
    2 small jalapeños, chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 teaspoon salt
