A note about serious food allergies

The flavors of apricot, cinnamon, and ancho are the best friends these little shrimp have met on their journey from the sea to your plate. And what a journey! They've been from the sea to our facilities to your kitchen, where they finally end up dressed up in crispiness and wrapped in a tortilla, basking in the heat from poblanos in the slaw and cheese. How does this story end? On your plate.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 1 and 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Juice lime.

    Stem poblano, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Pat shrimp dry.

    In a mixing bowl, combine shrimp and cornstarch, tossing until shrimp are thoroughly coated. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Cook the Peppers

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add poblanos to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer poblanos to another mixing bowl and let cool, 5 minutes.

    Reserve pan, no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Make the Slaw and Sauce

    Add slaw mix, mayonnaise, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, and a pinch of salt to bowl with poblanos and stir to combine. Set aside.

    In a microwave-safe bowl, combine ancho cinnamon rub and apricot preserves. Microwave until melted, 30-60 seconds.

  4. 4

    Cook the Shrimp

    Return pan used to cook poblanos to medium-high heat and add 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Let heat, 30-60 seconds.

    Add shrimp to hot pan and cook until light pink and shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Transfer shrimp to bowl with apricot mixture and toss to combine.

  5. 5

    Assemble Tacos and Finish Dish

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling tortillas with shrimp and slaw and garnishing with cheese. Bon appétit!
