(Note that I halved the value of the marinade since much of it remains in the pan after cooking.)

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1/2 lb. raw, medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
    1 tbsp olive oil
    Juice of 2 limes
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp ground coriander
    Pinch of coarse sea salt
    1/3 cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
    1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely diced
    1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
    1/2 mango, peeled and diced
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    4 white corn tortillas

Directions

Prepare a marinade of olive oil, juice of 1 lime, garlic, cumin, coriander and sea salt. Toss with the shrimp in a resealable plastic bag and set aside.

Wrap the corn tortillas in foil and put in a 400F oven for about 5 minutes. Prepare your sauce/topping of greek yogurt, juice of 1 lime, and chipotle pepper. Prep the cabbage, mango and cilantro -- set each aside. Finally, cook the shrimp in a skillet over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes, until the shrimp are just pink.

To assemble the tacos, take 1 warm corn tortilla, lay a little red cabbage across the middle. Add a little mango, add some shrimp, drizzle the sauce across the top, and garnish with a sprinkling of cilantro. Repeat for the remaining 3 tortillas. Eat and enjoy!
