Make Me A Meal Monday: Shrimp Tacos

I am always looking for new and exciting recipes, and I found this one on pinterest from Real Simple.

1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large cloves garlic minced
4 limes cut into quarters
kosher salt
8 6" tortillas
2-3 cups of finely shredded cabbage
bottled tomatillo salsa

Heat grill to medium high.
Mix milk, sour cream, cumin and and mayo together. Set aside.
The recipe says to melt the butter, and add garlic. Brush shrimp with the mixture
{I made these a second time, and just brushed them lightly with olive oil and some grill seasoning.. which is a much healthier way to go about it anyway... I don't think the butter and garlic added too much flavor}
Cut limes into quarters

Place the shrimp and limes both on the grill at the same time, until the shrimp are opaque and the limes are brown.
Remove shrimp and limes from grill and lightly salt the shrimp
Grill the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side and place in a brown paper bag to keep warm

Assemble your tacos with shrimp, cream sauce, tomatillo salsa, and fresh lime juice.
