about 14 large shrimp, cut into thirds
Juice from one Lime
1/2 -1 tsp cumin
olive oil (about 1 TBSP)
grape tomatoes (about a cup and a half)
flour tortillas

Slaw topping (optional):
cabbage, finely sliced red onion and lime juice

cilantro cream drizzle:
about 1/2 cup cilantro
1 cup sour cream
lime juice from one lime

Marinate first five ingredients for about 10 minutes and then saute with tomatoes until cooked.

fill flour tortillas with shrimp mixture, top with slaw and cilantro cream drizzle. This is also nice with avocado on top if you wish.
