Shrimp Tacos with Jalapeño Slaw and Pickled Onions
These tacos come together so quick and easy, you'll even have time to make a margarita!
- 1 medium red onion
- ¾ tsp (4 mL) salt, divided
- 2 limes, divided
- 1 small jalapeño, seeded
- 1 cup (250 mL) fresh cilantro leaves
- ½ cup (125 mL) reduced-fat mayonnaise
- 1½ lbs (700 g) uncooked medium (31–40 per pound) shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
- Canola oil for spraying Grill Stone
- 1 bag (14–16 oz or 397 g) shredded coleslaw mix
- 12 corn tortillas
Place the oven rack 2–4" (5–10 cm) from the heating element. Preheat the broiler.
Using the Simple Slicer on the #1 setting, slice the onion into the small Glass Mixing Bowl; rinse under warm water for 10–15 seconds, then drain. Sprinkle with ¼ tsp (1 mL) of the salt and the juice from 1 lime. Set aside and stir occasionally.
Cut the jalapeño into chunks and place in the Manual Food Processor. Add cilantro and process until finely chopped. Add the mayonnaise and juice of the remaining lime (about 2 tbsp/30 mL) and process until combined.
Place the shrimp in the medium Glass Mixing Bowl; add 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the mayonnaise mixture and the remaining ½ tsp (2 mL) of salt. Mix to coat the shrimp.
Spray the Rockcrok® Grill Stone with oil using the Kitchen Spritzer; pour the shrimp mixture in a single layer onto the stone. Broil for 6–7 minutes, or until the shrimp is pink and cooked through, rotating the stone halfway through broiling.
In the large Glass Mixing Bowl, combine the remaining sauce mixture with the coleslaw mix.
Place the tortillas in the Large Micro-Cooker®. Cover and microwave on HIGH about 45–60 seconds, or until warmed.
Fill each tortilla with shrimp, slaw, and pickled onions.

Rinsing raw onions under running water helps to tame their and mellow out their flavor. Combining the rinsed onions with salt and lime juice is a quick and simple way to “pickle” them.
