Peach Datil Shrimp Tacos

For Tacos:

1 lb. fresh shrimp - peeled and deveined
1 tbsp lime juice
3 garlic cloves - minced
2 tbsp cilantro - fresh and chopped
.5 tsp cumin
1 tbsp olive oil
.5 tbsp kosher salt
lime zest

For Slaw:

1 cup shredded cabbage
1/3 cup cilantro - fresh and chopped
1/4 onion - red preferably but any will do
1 avocado - chopped
.5 tbsp lime juice
.5 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp olive oil

For Sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise (you can also use Mexican Crema which is delicious)
3 tbsp Peach Datil sauce
1 garlic clove - finely chopped
.5 tbsp kosher salt
dash of lime zest

Steps to create tacos:

1. Combine lime juice, garlic, cilantro, cumin, olive oil, lime zest, salt in a large bowl and mix together. Toss in shrimp and put in refrigerator for 30 minutes (you can let it marinate longer)

2. Combine slaw ingredients in bowl and mix together

3. Combine sauce ingredients in bowl and whisk together

4. Heat grill or pan (the grill will be better as it allows it to get a little charry but pan is totally acceptable). You can also put the shrimp on skewers to make it easier to flip, and you can even baste the shrimp with more of the Peach Datil sauce while they're cooking. Cook shrimp for approximately three minutes on each side until nice and pink

5. You can use corn or flour tortillas, it's also preferable to heat them on the grill or pan as well.

6. Build tacos and enjoy!!


Poblano Jalapeno
The Poblano Jalapeno may be the mildest sauce that we make at Tennessee Hot Sauce Co., but it's still packed full of flavor. Here is a recipe from The Food Lab at Serious Eats. In this recipe, include 1/2 cup of the sauce in the marinade and you will not regret it!!

(Getting the idea yet?)
There are other foods of course, like eggs that are also a wonderful hot sauce vessel
Pineapple Habanero
Pineapple Habanero is the newest sauce in the standard lineup. It was introduced after it was such a successful seasonal flavor. It combines the wonderful medium heat of habanero peppers with charred pineapple and cinnamon to give it such a beautiful balance of flavor, body, and heat. The biggest game changer with the Pineapple Habanero sauce was in chicken and waffles. Here is an amazing recipe of chicken and waffles. To modify it, we include about 1/3 of a bottle of Pineapple Habanero hot sauce with the buttermilk marinade and allow it to sit overnight and up to 24 hours, and also use it as a topping afterwards:

Other Pineapple Habanero pairings:

Pizza! (This is Amy's favorite pizza sauce, she would eat the whole bottle if you let her)
Tacos, particularly seafood like fish or shrimp
Grilled meats (it makes an excellent basting sauce while you're cooking)

Garlic Habanero
The Garlic Habanero is packed with garlic (it better be if you're going to name the sauce after it...), and pairs perfectly well with the slight sweetness of the carrots and the habanero peppers. A wonderful recipe that we've found to use the garlic habanero is a creamy mushroom risotto. It's packed with flavor and the garlic and the heat are the perfect compliment

Honey Habanero
Honey Habanero is sweet and spicy, just like you! As such, it's good to pair with some sweet and savory dishes. A perfect example of this is chicken wings. You get some sweetness, and then BAM, there's the habanero heat that we all know and love.

Blood Orange Ghost
Blood Orange Ghost is the meatiest sauce in the normal lineup, and as such we tend to pair it up with heavier dishes. One of which is beef stew. Below is a very good, very flavorful beef stew that the Blood Orange goes with perfectly.
