WOK-FLAMED TEQUILA SHRIMP TACOS

PREP TIME

20 minutes

COOK TIME

20 minutes

SERVES

4

Ingredients

For the tacos:

2 garlic cloves

2 coriander roots

1 tsp sea salt

zest and juice of 1 lime

½ tsp ground cumin

½ tsp sugar

1 tbsp vegetable oil

12 large prawns/shrimp, peeled and deveined

3 tbsp tequila or vodka

½ red onion, finely diced

Marion’s Kitchen Coconut Sriracha (use my store locator to find out where to buy)

coriander (cilantro) leaves to serve

8 tortillas, warmed

lime wedges to serve

 

Cabbage & avocado ‘slaw:

2 cups shredded green cabbage

2 tbsp roughly chopped coriander (cilantro)

1 avocado, thinly sliced

juice of 1 lime

Steps

Use a mortar and pestle to pound the garlic, coriander roots and salt to a paste. Place prawns in a large bowl and mix through the garlic paste, lime zest, lime juice, cumin and sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Make the ‘slaw by tossing the ingredients in a large bowl.

Place a wok or large frying pan over high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil. Then add the marinated prawns and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until almost cooked. Carefully add the tequila or vodka (there will be flames so watch out!). Stir-fry for another minute until the flames have died out and the prawns are cooked through. Remove from heat.

For each taco, top a tortilla with the ‘slaw. Then prawns. Then drizzle with pan juices. Liberally add as much Coconut Sriracha or hot sauce as you like. Top with coriander and serve with lime wedges.
