Came across a recipe for Shrimp Tacos in the newspaper. It looked promising & thought I'd give it a try.

Made chipotle tequila-lime butter. Melted in a skillet over a medium heat fire.

Added some shrimp, lightly salted & stirred everything occasionally until the shrimp was cooked all the way through.

Had previously prepared a salad mix of chopped cabbage, romaine, cilantro & crumbled cotija cheese.
Put some of the salad on warmed tortillas & added some shrimp.

Chipotle Tequila-Lime Butter

4 oz unsalted butter at room temperature
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 or 2 green onions - minced
2 tbs finely minced cilantro leaves
1 (or more) chipotle chili in adobo - minced plus 1 tbs adobo sauce
1 tbs tequila
1 tbs lime juice
1/2 tsp kosher salt

Mix the softened butter with the other ingredients until thoroughly combined.
You can roll it into a log on plastic wrap. Keep in the fridge for a week or freeze it - will be good for 3 weeks.


Salad

1 - 2 cups loosely packed chopped cabbage
1 - 2 cups loosely packed chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup crumbled cotija cheese

Toss together
