Chef's Tip

Peel and de-vein your shrimp
prior to grilling. Leaving the
tails on makes a nice presentation,
but it can be a little tricky when eating.
You decide.


  1. Mix all sauce ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Soak Cedar skewers in water for 5 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high (400 degrees F).
  4. Thread 9 shrimp on each skewer.
  5. Mix melted butter and minced garlic then brush on shrimp.
  6. Grill shrimp until opaque, about 3 minutes per side.
  7. Grill limes until charred and juicy and grill tortillas to warm.
  8. Assemble shrimp tacos with all the extras, squeeze with grilled lime, drizzle with sauce.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!
