.1 1/2 cups lime juice  

  •  3 tablespoons olive oil  
  •  2 tablespoons chili powder  
  •  1 teaspoon mayonnaise  
  •  3 pounds uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined  
  •  Chipotle Sauce:  
  •  1/2 cup enchilada sauce  
  •  1/2 (4 ounce) jar diced jalapeno peppers  
  •  5 teaspoons honey  
  •  3 teaspoons lime juice  
  •  salt to taste  
  •  Red Slaw:  
  •  1/2 head red cabbage, shredded, or more to taste  
  •  2 bunches scallions, chopped  
  •  3 tablespoons olive oil  
  •  3 tablespoons white vinegar  
  •  1 small bunch cilantro, chopped  
  •  20 (8 inch) corn tortillas/ Flour 

  1. Mix lime juice, olive oil, chili powder, and mayonnaise together in a bowl. Add shrimp and marinade for at least 1 hour.                              
  2. Mix enchilada sauce, jalapenos, honey, lime juice, and salt together in a separate bowl for the sauce.                              
  3. Toss cabbage with scallions, olive oil, vinegar, and cilantro in a large bowl for the slaw.                              
  4. Heat tortillas in a frying pan over medium-high heat, about 30 seconds per side. Keep warm.                              
  5. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.                              
  6. Remove shrimp from marinade. Grill until opaque, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp to each tortilla; top with the sauce and slaw. 
  7. Another way to make the chipotle sauce is with 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 5 teaspoons of minced chipotle peppers in adobe sauce. I couldn't find chipotles in adobo sauce in our local grocery, so I improvised with what they had and it was great!

  •  1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil  
  •  salt and pepper to taste  
  •  1 pound large peeled and deveined cooked shrimp  
  •  1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil  
  •  salt and pepper to taste

  •  1 mango - peeled, seeded and diced  
  •  1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts  
  •  1/2 cup dried banana chips  
  •  4 ounces crumbled goat cheese  
  •  3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted
  • Prep

    5 m 
  • Ready In

  1. Prepare the salad dressing by whisking together the pineapple juice, orange juice, and 1/4 cup olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside. Brush the shrimp with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside. Place the spinach leaves, mango, macadamia nuts, and banana chips into a large mixing bowl.                              
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Heat the shrimp in the skillet on both sides until just warm in the center, about 1 minute per side.                              
  3. To assemble the salads, drizzle the spinach mixture with the salad dressing, and toss until evenly combined. Divide onto four plates. Divide the warm shrimp among the plates, and top with goat cheese. This way the goat cheese will melt down a little from the warmth of the grilled shrimp. Sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes to serve.
