  1. To make the sauce, pit and peel the avocado. Place in a food processor or blender with the cucumber, sour cream, green onions, dill, Tabasco sauce, lime juice and water. Puree until smooth. Season with salt and red pepper to taste.
  2. Combine the rub ingredients in a bowl and toss with shrimp to coat.
  3. In a medium non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat & saute the shrimp and garlic until the shrimp turns pink and is slightly browned.
  4. Remove from heat and sprinkle with the cilantro. Fold the tacos and serve with lettuce and tomato.

I made my own Shrimp taco recipe and used your sauce. The sauce was so good and made a nice addition to my shrimp tacos. I added cilantro instead of dill. Very good!

For some reason, I keep ending up with pre-cooked shrimp (either freshly steamed from the market because hubby wasn't paying attention or frozen work), that is when this is my go-to recipe. I warm the rub spices and cook the garlic in butter and then warm the shrimp in the mixture. Very easy and quick.

This was just what I was looking for. The shrimp was spicy and the avocado sauce cooled it down just right. MMMM! Thanks for a great recipe Misfit!
