Sriracha Honey Shrimp: 

  • 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 1 avocado, small cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups of pinneaple, small cubes
  • Cilantro, roughly chopped to garnish



  1. Place a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the butter to the skillet to melt. Stir in the honey, Sriracha, and garlic cloves. When the mixture is simmering, add the shrimp to the pan in a single layer.
  2. Cook 2 minutes, allowing to get browned and caramelized on one side, then, using tongs, turn the shrimp and finish cooking another 1-2 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. Spoon the pan sauces over the shrimp and sprinkle with cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
  3. Red Cabbage Slaw: Toss the cabbage mixture with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar and add the white wine vinegar.  Whisk together until combined.
  4. Layout the tortillas and place a little bit of the red cabbage slaw and 3 pieces of shrimp per tortilla. Top with the avocado, pinneaple, sour cream,  and cilantro!
