The Shrimp

The Slaw To Serve

Combine the shredded cabbage and sliced jalapeņos in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix milk, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt, and cayenne. Pour this over the cabbage and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Toss in the cilantro leaves just before serving.

Heat oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. Throw in the shrimp and toss them around, cooking until they turn opaque. Reduce the heat to low and pour in the red sauce, stirring to combine. Stir in the cumin and cook for another minute or two, then remove from the heat.

Serve the warm tortillas with the shrimp, slaw, pico de gallo, avocado slices, and lime wedges and let everyone build their own tacos. Be sure to squeeze lime juice over the top at the end.
