Cilantro Shrimp Tacos with Spicy Slaw

I am obsessed with tacos—hard shell, soft shell, chicken, veggie, whatever— but seafood, especially shrimp tacos , are my favorite. Still hankering for my all time favorite which I had in Austin two weeks ago—the Baja Shrimp at Torchy’s Tacos (hand-battered fried shrimp with slaw, jalapenos, queso fresco, and chipotle sauce—so darn good). Since there is not a Torchy’s in New York City (probably for the better…), I devised this super easy healthier spin on the Baja. Hope you enjoy it on #TacoTuesday, or any other day of the week you like!

Ingredients (makes 4 servings):

(4) Siete Foods tortillas (they are all delicious and #legitgood, but I’m a fan of the almond flour ones in particular)

1 avocado

1 lb deveined, shell-off wild caught shrimp
