Shrimp Soft Tacos with Citrus Coleslaw

I love this recipe! It is especially good on a hot day, it is very refreshing and super easy to make. This recipe is from Real Simple.

1/8 cup fresh orange juice
2 Tbls fresh lime juice
2 Tbls sour cream
salt and pepper if wanted
8 oz broccoli slaw mix (I use half a package)
1 cup corn
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped finely
1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp
whole wheat tortillas

In a bowl with a lid, mix the orange juice, lime juice, sour cream, salt and pepper. Add the slaw, corn and jalapeno, put the lid on it and shake well to combine. Let the slaw mix sit for at least ten minutes, but shake it up every now and then.

If desired, season the shrimp (I don't) and saute them over medium high heat until opaque (3 minutes or so), then warm up a tortilla, put 5-6 shrimp on it, and top with the slaw mixture. Mmmmmm.......so good......

Why? I've made this recipe several times and really like it. The original recipe called for cabbage slaw, but because I don't really care for cabbage, I replaced it with broccoli slaw and love this recipe. The dressing on the broccoli slaw has a sharp bite that is totally refreshing on a warm day, and that, combined with the warm shrimp and tortilla, is a fantastic taste. The slaw mixture keeps really well and can be eaten alone as a salad. I will say that the dressing can be a bit runny in the tacos, but either increasing the sour cream or decreasing the orange juice will eliminate that problem.
