Grilled BBQ Shrimp On Flour Tortillas With Mango-Pickled Red Onion Salad

  • 1 pound shrimp (21 to 25 per pound size), peeled and deveined
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup yellow onions cut into 3/8-inch dice
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup grated Mexican cotija cheese plus more for finishing
  • 3 cups julienne green cabbage
  • Pickled red onion (recipe to follow)
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and cut into julienne
  • 1/2 cup of toasted pecans
  • 1 cup small diced jicama
  • 1/2 cup Smokey Cumin-Lime Vinaigrette (recipe follows)
  • 4 fajita-size flour tortillas, warm
  • 1/3 cup toasted and coarsely ground green pumpkin seeds
  • 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
Cooking Procedures:
  • Heat a grill pan over medium heat.
  • Season the shrimp with salt and place on the hot grill pan.
  • Cook until opaque, about 5 to 6 minutes, turning once halfway during the cooking.
  • Transfer the shrimp to a cutting board, let cool for a minute, then roughly chop. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Just before the oil starts to smoke, add the onions.
  • Sauté until they are translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the barbeque sauce, and adjust the heat to keep at a steady simmer.
  • Add the shrimp and stir in the sauce. Take off the heat, and add the cheese. Set aside.
  • Layer the cabbage, red onion, mango, pecans, and jicama in a medium bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette. Season to taste with salt.
  • On warmed tortillas, place a generous spoonful of the shrimp barbeque in the center, spread it out a touch, and then roll the tortilla. Transfer to serving plates.
  • Place some of the salad on the center of each rolled tortilla.
  • Spoon a little of the salsa on the salad.
  • Sprinkle a little more cotija cheese on top, then some pumpkin seeds.
  • Place a sprig of cilantro on top of each.
  • Serve immediately.
