I N G R E D I E N T S //
 1 lb large shrimp, peeled & deveined
 3 tbsp unsalted butter, like Vital Farms
 4 tbsp fresh lime juice, about 2 - 3 limes
 2 oz blanco tequila
 1 tsp course sea salt
 2 tbsp minced garlic
 2 tsp Trader Joe's Chile Lime Seasoning
 ¼ cup fresh chopped cilantro

 Fresh sliced mango
 Fresh sliced avocado
 Fresh sliced jalapenos
 (optional) sour cream
 (optional) feta cheese

1

In a large bowl, add in 3 Tbls. of the lime juice (leave the last Tbls. to spritz on at the end), the tequila, salt and Trader Joe's Chile Lime seasoning. Combine with a spoon and then add in the cleaned shrimp. Stir around to coat the shrimp in the marinade and then pop in the fridge while you heat up the skillet.

2

In a large, 12" skillet over medium-low heat, melt 3 Tbls. of unslated butter. Once it is melted, add in all the minced garlic and saute for 30 seconds to a minute. Watch it to make sure it doesn't burn! It happens easily.

3

Once the butter and garlic are ready, add in about half the shrimp and marinade to the pan. You don't want to crowd the shrimp, so sauteing the shrimp in batches works best! Allow the shrimp to cook for about 5 - 6 minutes or until it turns light pink, stirring frequently.

4

Once the shrimp have turned pink, remove them from the skillet and place in a clean bowl. Sprinkle with the fresh cilantro and lime juice, then go back and cook the other batch of shrimp and repeat!

5

While your last batch of shrimp cooks, heat up some tortillas, like Siete's Casava Flour tortillas for a gluten free option. Then slice up some avocado, jalapenos and the mango to dress up the tacos! Trust me, these three toppings really make these tacos amazing!
