Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a 12" (30-cm) skillet over medium heat. Season the shrimp with the seasoning in a medium bowl.

  2. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until pink and opaque, 3–4 minutes.

  3. Combine all the ingredients for the slaw and refrigerate until ready to use.

  4. For the sauce, combine the peanut butter, 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the water, soy sauce, seasoning, and garlic. Thin out the sauce with additional water if it’s too thick.

  5. To serve, fill each tortilla with 3–4 shrimp. Top with the slaw, a drizzle of the sauce, and additional chopped cilantro, if you’d like.

Cook's Tips:

Easy Change-Ups

Chicken Choice: Not a fan of shrimp? Try this recipe with diced chicken tenders. Cook in the skillet until 165°F (74°C), about 7–8 minutes, turning once.

Seafood Salad: You can double the slaw recipe and omit the tortillas. Serve the shrimp on top of the slaw with the sauce drizzled over the top.

Summertime Slaw: This recipe is great with broccoli slaw or Brussels sprouts slaw!

One More Reason to Season: When you run out of Honey Sriracha Seasoning, try using Chili Lime Rub or Chipotle Rub for a delicious new take on this recipe.
