Spicy Sriracha Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Lime Slaw

Tacos. We need to talk about tacos.

My intro-writing skills are on point, amirite? Pass the coffee; it’s gonna be a long day.

At one magical point in time, I began a love affair with fish tacos. I fell under their spell and haven’t been able to tear myself away ever since. If they’re an option on a menu, you bet your booty I’m ordering them. If the local seafood market has a sale? Fish tacos for everyone!!! I play favorites with my food and regret nothing.

Then one day I let my husband do the grocery shopping.

dun – dun – dun

Frozen shrimp were on sale. Buy one get one free, to be exact. And just like that, my deep freezer was filled with no less than six jumbo bags of shrimp.

But wait, there’s more. This darling pilot of mine did one more quick grocery run for me two weeks later and shrimp were on sale… AGAIN!

Naturally he forgot about all past transgressions and bought. more. shrimp.

I’m now terrified of my freezer.

From this point onwards, all tacos will be shrimp tacos.

Author Jenn Laughlin – Peas and Crayons


  • 6-12 soft corn tortillas see notes
  • 1 pound shrimp fresh or frozen/thawed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 TBSP avocado oil (or favorite healthy oil)
  • 1/4 cup homemade or store-bought ranch dressing*
  • 1 TBSP Sriracha
  • 1 cup finely shredded/chopped cabbage** (green, red, or both!)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 1-2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1 lime
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • fresh chopped cilantro to taste


  1. Clean and peel shrimp, defrosting if needed. Lately we’ve been buying frozen, deveined, easy-peel shrimp. All I have to do is defrost, peel, and cook! You can also buy your shrimp already peeled if you’d like!
  2. Set prepped shrimp in the fridge, covered while you make your slaw and sauce.
  3. For the Sriracha Ranch, simply whisk together both ingredients. For a spicier sauce, add extra Sriracha to taste.
  4. For the Cilantro Lime Slaw, remove the stem/seeds/ribs from the jalapeño, cut into strips and mince. Combine with cabbage, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper. Cut your lime in half and add juice of half the lime into your slaw. Toss together and add as much cilantro as your heart desires! Slice the remaining half into wedges for your tacos. Adjust honey to taste and set aside to marinate while you cook the shrimp.
  5. Pat shrimp dry and season with paprika, cayenne, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well to coat both sides.
  6. Heat a large pan or skillet to medium-high heat with 1 TBSP of oil and sauté your shrimp. Cook on each side for about 2 minutes until shrimp curl and become opaque. The cook time will depend on the heat setting you choose and the size of your shrimp, but regardless they’ll be perfectly cooked in a matter of minutes.
  7. Place your shrimp on a clean cutting board and chop into smaller pieces, much like you were coarsely chopping an onion. This extra step helps prevent the shrimp from dive-bombing out of your taco and onto your plate/lap/floor and makes them way easier to eat!
  8. Line your corn tortillas with shrimp and top with a hearty drizzle of sauce. Double up on corn tortillas if desired to prevent breakage (see notes) – I like to gently warm my corn tortillas up in the microwave or on a skillet before stuffing them. So good!
  9. Top with slaw, serve with lime wedges, and dig in!

Recipe Notes

*If making these dairy-free, grab a paleo-friendly or dairy-free ranch or feel free to make your own at home!

TORTILLA TIP: The amount of tortillas you use will depend on two factors: how many you’re serving and how full you’re stuffing each tacos. If you’re making 6 smaller tacos you may be able to get away with just 6 single tortillas. Stuffing the filling into 4 or 5 tacos? Double up on the tortillas to prevent tearing. I learned this trick from our local tex-mex restaurants and have been doubling up on my tortillas ever since! You can even double up if you’re making 6 tacos – whatever works!

As for the cilantro, use as much or as little as you’d like! Not a fan of cilantro? No problem! Skip the cilantro entirely and jazz up the flavor of your slaw using thinly sliced red onion instead.

  • Andrea

    5 stars
    Ok so the shrimp is good, but that slaw…that slaw is the freaking star of this show!! It is SO SO good!! I have made it by itself as a side dish, and it’s yummy on hotdogs too. I added a little finely diced yellow onion because I love onions. I’m adding this slaw to my weekly grocery list. It’s THAT good.

    • Hahaha love it! I’m so stoked you’re as bonkers for the slaw as I am! It’s fantastic on veggie burgers (or regular burgers) too omg! I’m so glad you’re loving the recipe, Andrea – thanks!

  • Nina

    Best recipe ever! My family all ask me to make the famous shrimp tacos as they call them lol! Absolutely great and followed recipe exactly

    • I’m so thrilled they’ve been a hit with y’all! Thanks Nina!

  • susie

    does nutritional info include ranch dressing?????

    • Hi Susie! The recipe card’s nutrition estimate does include the ranch, yes. Values will vary based on brand and amount of tortillas used, type of ranch dressing (some are healthier than others) and how much Sriracha ranch is added to each taco.

  • Jenn

    5 stars
    I’ve made a similar recipe like this one before and it was good but this was really, really good! I was hesitant at first because honey and slaw didn’t sound good together to me but it is awesome. My husband says this is one of his top 3 favorites!

  • Stef

    5 stars
    Oh my goodness!! I have tried quite a few new recipes this summer. This is by far my favorite! I decided to make it after loving shrimp tacos at a local Mexican restaurant. These were so much better. So much more flavor. We added tomatoes and Cojita cheese. I think I spelled that right. Had it left over from another Mexican dish. I would recommend you try this. You will not be disappointed.

    Love these! Have made several times and they are even a hit with my picky hubby. Question: What do you consider a serving size? Is it 1 taco?

    The hubs and I just returned from the beach last night and had just had delicious shrimp tacos at a restaurant on the beach. We had juevos rancheros for breakfast this morning, and he still wanted shrimp tacos for dinner. I went surfing Pinterest and had already saved this recipe. I made it tonight following the recipe to the T (except only had smoked paprika). We also had watermelon margaritas (with jalepenos and thyme). We are high-end eaters, and the hubs said these were the best tacos we’d ever fixed at home. He wants to have them again tomorrow night (after playing tennis with son and DIL). If it doubles easily, we’ll fix them again to triple in two weeks when niece and her new hub come through on their way to the beach. So easy to throw together and so delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever written a review on a recipe site! This is definitely a keeper! Thank you!

    I make these all the time and could eat them every single day!!! I love them!!

  • Beth

    5 stars
    This was delicious!! I looked at over a dozen shrimp taco recipes before settling on this one and it not disappoint! We will be adding this to our dinner time rotation. Side note… I didn’t have any honey, so I took a chance and used a little maple syrup. It worked! We paired it with refried beans and margaritas for the perfect meal!!!

  • Beth

    I don’t have any honey. Will the sale be ok without it or is there something I can substitute for it?

    • Hi Beth! You can use any sweetener desired in place of the honey. Typical slaws use a little white sugar to cut the acidity and round out the flavors so you can try adding that to taste or if you like a more tart slaw you can skip a sweetener entirely. xoxo

        Very, very good!

  • Prerna

    I love this recipe but since I making it for a crowd , wanted to know how can I make the shrimps ahead of time without having to grill later .

    • Hi Prerna! So glad you’re loving the recipe! So I’ve only made these in advance one time and I had made and assembled the tacos one hour prior to a pool party and brought them over chilled. I wasn’t sure how the cold tacos would go over but we devoured them in minutes. I think if you and your guests wouldn’t mind a chilled shrimp filling then you could do the same and if you have to make them more than an hour or two in advance simply fill the tacos before serving or set everything out “build your own taco” style. Another option could be to warm the shrimp up before serving but I haven’t tried that yet to advise on it. Hope you have a great get-together! xo

    Fantastic recipe! I love the flavor of the slaw and sauce! I had leftover slaw so I used it on some pulled pork that I smoked and it was the perfect compliment to that as well!

  • Kris

    I was trying to find a recipe that I could use cod with. Came across yours and it sounded so good that I thought it was worth a try. I just broke up the cod and seasoned it the same. It was so good! Can’t wait to try it with shrimp. Thanks for saving me!

    • Love the use of cod as a tasty swap here and I’m so so stoked you enjoyed the recipe! Thanks Kris!

  • Yolanda Thomas

    I made these tacos today. We loved the taste of the shrimp and the sauce, but the slaw….not so much. Thanks for the recipe for a good base. I will find a slaw we like.

  • Gale

    This recipe is amazing! Ive made it several times and not always with shrimp, I use Grouper and will try tuna tonight. For the first time making a recipe I never change the required ingredients, but then after making it a few times I do add my own touches! Best Shrimp Taco recipe!

    • Thank you Gale! So stoked you’ve been making these shrimp tacos on repeat!

  • Maggie

    I made this for the week and added roasted chickpeas to not only stretch the recipe, but to make me feel a little better about not being strictly vegetarian this week. So good!

    • OMG that’s the ultimate addition – love that you added crispy roasted chickpeas, Maggie! xoxo

  • Gigi

    Love how easy and delish! The combo of slaw, sauce and shrimp are perfect. I might add next time quest fresco??

    • Ooh queso fresco would be tasty! So glad you loved the tacos Gina – thanks!

  • Angel Perry

    Hi there! I love this recipe so much! I do have one question though. Are the carbs mostly from the tortillas? I’m on a low-carb diet and put mine on a low-carb tortilla. I’m hoping that is MOSTLY where the carb count came from!

    • Hey Angel! The tortillas are for sure the main source of carbs here. If you have to stay within a strict carb count for the day, I’d for sure get a free subscription to myfitnesspal.com or another nutrition planner that will help you calculate carbs. I would keep an eye on the carbs in the sriracha too as well as the honey in the slaw, but this recipe can for sure be tweaked to be low-carb and the tortilla swap is a great start! xoxo

  • Amanda

    5 stars
    Love love love these tacos!

  • SR

    These look wonderful. Where does all the sodium come from? The ranch dressing? Is that per taco?

    Thank you.

    • Thanks! So there is a little added to season the slaw (1/8 tsp) and shrimp (1/4 tsp), some in the Sriracha, and some in the Ranch. The amount will vary on what you use and how much so it’s totally adjustable! I think there was a calculating error here too b/c that is way too high for one taco based on the ingredients used. I’m going to investigate! xoxo

  • Kellie Hale

    Do you use precooked or raw shrimp? Thanks!

    • Hey Kellie! Raw will have the best results. xo

    This recipe was super easy and quick to make. My husband absolutely loved them! Can’t wait to make it again!!

  • Jess

    Super quick question! I just made the slaw, and it smells soooo vinegary. Is this normal, or did I mess it up? It says 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, but I just did one.

    • Hey Jess! It does at first b/c the aromatics of the vinegar really hits ya that first few minutes! As it sits it will mellow and absorb into the cabbage; softening it slightly and giving it a really great sauce to it! If desired extra lime and honey can be added as well. xoxo

  • Molly

    5 stars
    OMG soooo good! I just made these, but made a few changes based on my tastes and what I had on hand. I used smoked paprika vs. regular paprika on the shrimp, then added feta, diced tomatoes, and diced onion. Best tacos I’ve ever had!!!

  • Janet

    5 stars
    Love love love these tacos! Had to make a substitution: used avocado poblano dressing because I didn’t have ranch dressing. This is definitely a keeper recipe!!

  • Ama

  • Sonya S

    So yummy !!!! And easy !!!

    Big hit with my teens!

  • Katie

    5 stars
    Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! I made the shrimp exactly as was suggested. I made the regular ranch siracha and the dairy free ranch siracha to meet the needs of our family. (I just didn’t have dill in my pantry, so I made the DF dressing without it and it was still fantastic.) For the slaw, when I was making it, I was nervous a whole jalepeño would be too spicy for my kids, so I added 1/3 of one and about 1 1/2c slaw since I had a lot of juice. I will add more jalepeño next time, since it wasn’t too spicy. I cooked our corn tortillas in canola spray in a pan on the stove and I topped the tacos with avocado and served it with Mexican rice and beans. Nothing was too spicy and the flavor blended beautifully. I will definitely make these flavorful, restaurant quality tacos again.

    These were delicious paired with homemade tortillas. The recipe was easy to follow and quick to make.

  • 5 stars
    This was a huge hit with my family. Question though, I somehow have extra slaw, any ideas on what to pair it with so it doesn’t go to waste? Thanks!!!

    • So glad you enjoyed it Laney, thanks!

      We love putting leftover slaw on top of refried bean tostadas (bake a corn tortilla spritzed with oil until crispy or use premade crunchy taco shells baked and pulled apart into halves – top with refried beans, cheese, and taco toppings + slaw) and I’ll often stir it into an empty-the-crisper salad with mix-ins like kale, quinoa, corn, etc… And for a third option (lol!) we love it on this Mexican Kale Salad: https://peasandcrayons.com/2018/04/mexican-kale-salad.html

      Hope this helps! xoxo

    We noshed on these babies poolside one afternoon!! Holy Yum! Rarely do all the different components of a recipe stand up on their own. The Siracha Ranch, Cilatro Lime Slaw, and seasoned shrimp combined are fabulous yet can definitely be incorporated into other recipes. Total deliciousness!

    • I could legit eat these forever! So super stoked you enjoyed them! Thank you!!

  • Peggy Griffin

    Very nice! I added 1T ancho chili to the shrimp spice. I did not have cabbage, so I used thinly sliced romaine, tomato, jalapeño, scallions and avocado. And shells (I would post a picture if I knew how!) instead of soft. Really good!

  • Hannah

    5 stars
    Soso good!! I was cooking for people who are not shrimp eaters so I substituted tilapia instead and we all loved it! The flavors blend so well together. Would be an awesome healthy alternative with some cauliflower rice and make it a bowl.

    This recipe is amazing. I was hesitant abt adding cilantro.. the heat of jalapenos and then the tartness of apple cider vinegar tigether made me cringe but decided to give it a try and man!! I was blown away! Loved it!! Thanks for sharing

    • So super glad you enjoyed it Kenya and that you decided to give it a shot! I love these tacos like woah!

  • Kristi Z

    5 stars
    TERRIFIC!!! This recipe is a definite keeper…hubby even said, “you can make this again!” which is something he never says. The various flavors really work well together. My favorite part was the honey/vinegar with the spiciness. I used flour tortillas and green cabbage because that’s what I had. I added fresh chopped garlic and ginger to the shrimp dry rub. I made the slaw just with honey, apple cider vinegar and black pepper because I didn’t have lime and I thought adding hot pepper at this point would make the dish too spicy for our tastes. I whipped up the siracha/ranch sauce without referring to the recipe. After taste testing it, I decided to add some sour cream to tone it down. I had some corn to get rid of, so I made a corn, red onion and tomato salsa to top off this delicious meal. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Most things I try from Pinterest end up being “fails”. This was so easy, and even looked like the picture. I made the coleslaw earlier in the day because I think coleslaw is best the next day.

  • Kelly

    Delicious. Not a huge fan on super spicy, so I substituted salsa for the sriracha and it was still amazing. Such a great combination of flavors.

  • Kristen

    I actually got to this recipe through your pickled veggie one since you said it’s good in these! I was wondering, do you do the slaw, siracha sauce and pickled veggies all on top? That seems like a lot going on but maybe it’s just right?

    • Hey Kristen! Yes we’re totally loving the pickled veggies on these tacos! What I’ll usually do is the pickled veggies in place of the slaw (this comes in handy for a flavor boost when I’m out of cabbage and/or jalapeños!) and then still add the sauce! I’ll layer the sauce first, then the shrimp, then the pickled veg in this case. Hope you get a chance to try them soon and love them as much as we do! 🙂

    I made these on Thursday night, took less than an hour. I froze the extra cilantro in a zippy bag which worked out well because I made them again last night. Absolutely delicious, quick and added bonus– all the ingredients are available at Trader Joe’s. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes out. Thank You so much for taking the time to share. xoxoxo

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was fast, easy and best of all it was delicious. I didn’t have Ranch Dressing on hand so I simply mixed Sirracha with a little mayo. I’m sure it would work as well with sour cream or yogurt. I’ll definitely make these again.

    • Thank you MaddieLin! The sauce will totally work with sour cream or yogurt too (sometimes I even do straight up Sriracha and fan my face like a fool LOL!) and I’m so glad they’ll make repeat status in your kitchen! Whooo!

I will definitely try more of your recipes! I love your ease of words! They’re easy to understand and I love the humor in them! Thank you for making these available to the public!

    I made these last night and they were so amazing! My entire family devoured them. I will definitely have to double this recipe next time. I was also very pleased with how quick and easy this was! It seems like such an indulgent, fancy meal but it’s kind of a low key lazy girl hack. One little snag I encountered though was the cilantro-lime slaw. I followed the instructions and then realized right before serving that the cilantro-lime slaw didn’t have any cilantro in it! I re-read the recipe twice and couldn’t find anything indicating cilantro in the slaw. This isn’t the biggest deal but if you’re following a recipe, it’s an easy step to miss. I just added some in there and it was great. I will most certainly be making these regularly.

    • So super glad you loved them Lindsay! Cracking up over low-key lazy girl hack (my new favorite phrase now!) and so sorry I’m a total space cadet and left out the part about adding the green stuff to the mix. (all fixed now – eek!) Stoked to make repeat status with this recipe for ya and thank you so so much for the sweet review! 🙂 xo

    I do love me some shrimp, but I’m going to be honest- I’ve never had sriracha…shocking, I know. So I was a little scared, but bought it anyway, lol. Let me tell you guys that sriracha ranch…perfect for shrimp. Plus I’m sure I’ll throw it on something else here since this single lady got to eat these things on her own ;P The slaw has a destiny too- it’ll be going on a chicken sandwich here in a day or two!! So if you’re iffy on whether or not to make them, dooo it!! Jenn’s not leading you astray here, they’re delicious 🙂

    • Beyond thrilled to hear it Christina, thank you so much! 🙂

    Nice, glad for this happy accident of ingredients! I don’t like fish tacos generally, except for certain types of shrimp, this looks exactly like that type, I’ve never made it myself just had it on a menu, so thank you for this recipe and breaking it down, even like your tortilla selection (thin)!

    Yum! But wouldn’t ranch count as dairy? Do you have a recipe to make dairy-free ranch? Thanks!

    • Hey Megan! You’re entirely right! There are some awesome paleo recipes available that are dairy-free (even in stores too like Primal Kitchen ranch and Organicville dairy-free ranch) – this one looks great: Paleo Ranch Dressing Recipe

    This recipe is awesome. I’ve recommended it to my Facebook friends. Thanks for giving me a dish I can enjoy again and again!

    • Ellen your comment made me smile ear to ear – thank you so much! So thrilled you loved them! 🙂

  • These look amazing!

  • Yum! I love shrimp – they’re not my husband’s favorite but he has a bit of a taco obsession so I feel like these would be a perfect compromise for us 🙂

    • I feel like these babies could convert someone on the fence about shrimp. SO GOOD! Thanks Christina and I hope you get to try them super soon ❤️ 🙂

  • We don’t eat tacos nearly enough, nor are shrimps often on the menu… The bf doesn’t like seafood – poor me! But these look super delicious, so colourful! Can’t wait to try some!

    • I feel you! My husband always whimpered whenever I put quinoa or spaghetti squash on the menu, but now he willingly eats both thank goodness! Maybe offer him leftovers and make a half-portion of these tasty tacos for yourself? 🙂 Thanks Vivian! xo

  • Let’s taco bout how your writing cracks me up. Sriracha makes everything taste better.

    • Aw thanks Benny! Sriracha really does make the world go round — I put it on everything! 🙂
