    In a small pan over medium-high heat, add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom, about 2 tablespoons. Cook the tortillas one at a time until soft, about 30 seconds on each side. Fold over to make a taco shell. As you cook each tortilla, place them on paper towels to absorb any of the leftover oil.

  • 5

    Make the cilantro-lime sour cream. In a small bowl, add the sour cream, cilantro, cumin, lime zest, and juice. Stir well to combine.

  • 6

    Remove the shrimp from the grill. Add shrimp into each taco shell. Top with cabbage, tomato, avocado, and cilantro-lime sour cream, as desired. Enjoy!
