Cooking Tips

  • If you can't find tamarind paste, you can substitute it with tamarind concentrate or pulp.
  • For extra heat, add some chopped jalapenos or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to the tamarind sauce.
  • You can also grill the shrimp instead of cooking them in a skillet for a smoky flavor.

Storage and Serving

  • These tacos are best served immediately while the shrimp and slaw are still fresh and crispy.
  • If you have any leftovers, store the shrimp and slaw separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
  • To reheat, gently warm the shrimp in a skillet and refresh the slaw with a squeeze of lime juice before serving.
