About this Recipe

If you’re looking for your next seafood fix, we’ve got you covered. Chipotle powder gives these shrimp a smoky heat that balances perfectly with a drizzle of sour cream. You’ll feel like you’re off the coast of Mexico, maybe even with a beer in hand!



Marinate shrimp

  • In medium bowl, stir together juice of ½ lime, chipotle powder, 1 teaspoon cooking oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Add shrimp to bowl with chipotle mixture and toss to coat.
  • Marinate for 5–10 minutes.


Prep coleslaw

  • Remove jalapeño stem, halve jalapeño lengthwise and remove seeds. Thinly slice half of jalapeño for coleslaw; finely chop half and set aside for pico de gallo. Use less if you don’t like it spicy.
  • Chop half of cilantro (stems are delicious, too!). Save remaining cilantro for pico de gallo.
  • In medium bowl, toss together coleslaw mix, sliced jalapeño, chopped cilantro, juice of ½ lime, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.


Prep shrimp & tortillas

  • Drain shrimp and evenly spread shrimp in Zone 2 of Brava metal tray.
  • Stack corn tortillas and wrap in foil. Place in center of Brava glass tray.
