1 pound deveined, tail removed raw shrimp medium or large
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 juice of lime
1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Sauce
1 avocado
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 jalapeno (remove seeds for mild heat)
1/4 cup cilantro packed
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

For the Avocado Sauce
Place all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.

For the Shrimp
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Season shrimp with chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper and toss until evenly coated.

For Assembling
Place a little of each cabbage on a tortilla, drizzle with some sauce, top with 4-5 shrimp, drizzle with more sauce, sprinkle with cilantro. Repeat with remaining ingredients and serve.
