Shrimp and Veggie Taquitos

This is a better version for you than the regular fried taquitos. Serve with a fresh cabbage salad.

  1. Preheat the grill. Rinse and clean shrimp under cold water. Place in a bowl. Squeeze juice of half a lime over the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  2. In a bowl, toss the cabbage, onion, pineapple and carrots. Squeeze juice of half a lime over the mixture and add 1 teaspoon lime zest. Set aside.
  3. Transfer shrimp to the grill and cook about 3 minutes on each side.
  4. Warm tortillas for about 30 seconds per side on grill or comal. Wrap them in a towel or foil to keep them warm.
  5. Top each tortilla with grilled shrimp and roll into taquitos.
  6. Transfer to a serving plate and serve with the vegetable mixture and cilantro sprigs. Squeeze more lime juice and top with your favorite salsa!
  7. Note: For easy grilling, use metal or wooden skewers for shrimp.
