  • 12 oz bag coleslaw mix (red/green cabbage and carrots)
  • cup mayo I like Sir Kensington's Avocado Oil Mayo
  • cup almond or coconut milk
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • ½ tsp dried dill
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp thawed and tails removed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 tbsp ghee or butter melted
  • cup Frank's Red Hot hot sauce
  • chopped green onions for garnish
  • 6 Grain free tortillas of choice I like Siete Cassava Tortillas


  • Combine the mayo, almond or coconut milk, dried chives, dried dill, dried parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and lime juice in a large bowl and whisk well. Reserve 1/4 cup of the ranch dressing and set it aside in a separate container/bowl to drizzle on top of the tacos. Pour the bag of coleslaw mix into the bowl with the remaining ranch and mix well to combine. Set the coleslaw in the fridge to chill while you make the shrimp.
  • Thaw your shrimp if previously frozen. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the shrimp and sprinkle with the paprika and a bit of salt and pepper. Cook the shrimp 1-2 minutes each side, until it's pink and no longer opaque.
  • Meanwhile, make your buffalo sauce. Combine the melted ghee or butter with the Frank's Red Hot and stir well. Pour the buffalo sauce into the pan with the shrimp once it is cooked. Stir for an additional 1-2 minutes until the shrimp are coated.
  • Heat or toast your tortillas for 15-20 seconds. Fill each tortilla with some of the coleslaw, a few shrimp, a drizzle of the extra ranch, and chopped green onions. Enjoy!
