chipotle shrimp tacos
chipotle sauce:
  • 2-3 chipotle peppers from a can of chipotles in adobo
  • ¼ cup mayo, Kewpie or any kind
  • ½ cup silken tofu
  • splash of honey (or agave)
  • salt & pepper
  • squeezes of lime
  • splash of rice vinegar, if you make yours too spicy by accident
for the tacos:
  • 2-3 raw shrimp per taco (or sliced portobello mushrooms for a veggie version)
  • olive oil
  • minced garlic
  • salt, pepper
  • shredded napa cabbage
  • a few thinly sliced radishes
  • chopped cilantro
  • avocado slices
  • a few limes
  • tortillas (corn or flour)
  1. Combine all ingredients for the chipotle sauce in a food processor. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. You may want to add more chipotle peppers for more flavor/spice, more mayo to make it richer, or more tofu to mellow it out. Chill until ready to serve.
  2. Season the raw shrimp with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a skillet over med-high heat. When the oil is starting to bubble, add shrimp and cook for about 2 minutes per side. When the shrimp is almost done, add the minced garlic and give the pan a good shake (I find that my garlic burns if I add it earlier). Add a few squeezes of lime and remove shrimp from the pan.
  3. Assemble tacos with shrimp, raw veggies, spoonfuls of the chipotle sauce, and extra limes.
