Grilled Shrimp Tacos w/Lime Slaw

This Recipe will make 8 Tacos

1 lb uncooked shrimp(21-24/lb) peeled and de-veined
           your favorite seafood seasoning (Smokin' Hoggz all purpose dry rub)
8 6-inch corn tortillas (flour tortillas are ok too)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp mayo
grated zest from 1 lime
juice from 1 lime
16 oz pkg cole slaw mix (Dole)
2 scallions(green onion) diced
1 Jalapeno seeded and diced
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
1 large tomato seeded and diced
Sweet chili sauce
Canola oil
Salt and pepper to taste

For the slaw(prepared about 2 hours before hand):
In a bowl combine sour cream, mayo, 1/2 lime zest, lime juice. Add cole slaw mix, green onions, jalapeno, cilantro and mix well. Season w/ salt and pepper. Stir in tomato. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.

For the shrimp:
In a bowl toss shrimp w/ oil, the rest of the lime zest, salt and pepper and let sit for about 1/2 hour. I find it easier to put the shrimp on skewers after this and season with the dry rub. Grill shrimp about 2-3 min per side over direct heat, toss shrimp in sweet chili sauce.

For the tortillas:
Grill tortillas over direct heat for about 1 min per side.

To assemble the tacos, spoon slaw mix into bottom of the tortilla, top with 3 shrimp and enjoy!
