Directions

Dice the shrimp into 1/2-inch pieces. Combine in a bowl with the egg white and cornstarch and stir until well coated. Allow to sit for 20 minutes.

Heat the oil to 375 degrees F in a wok.

Add the shrimp to the wok and cook until just cooked through. Remove from the oil and set aside.

Drain all but 2 tablespoons of oil from the wok. Add the garlic chili sauce and ginger to the pan and stir-fry until aromatic, a few seconds. Add the soy, vinegar and sugar to the pan, stirring to make a sauce. Then add the cooked shrimp back to the wok, tossing to coat. Stir in the scallions. Keep warm until ready to assemble.

Mix the cabbage, cilantro and celery together. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, Sriricha, lime zest and juice until smooth.

To assemble, warm the tortillas on a griddle or dry pan. Divide the shrimp among the tortillas. Top with a heavy pinch of the cabbage mixture, drizzle with the Sriracha sauce and garnish with the chopped honey roasted peanuts. Serve immediately.

    I made these about a month ago , after watching Lee Anne make them on her show. They reminded me of shrimp tacos from my favorite mexican resturant, so I just had to try them. They were better than those from the resturant, I loved the spices and the cabbage and celery slaw were a great topping. My husband enjoyed them very much. I eat mine on flour tortillas cuz that's what I prefer, as my honey likes the corn tortillas. They are on this weeks menu! Thanks, Lee Ann.
