  1. Place pineapple, red pepper and jalapeƱo peppers on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a 400 degree oven for about 13 minutes. While those ingredients are cooking, mix spices together until well combined and toss with shrimp and a little olive until coated. After 13 minutes, add shrimp to pan, making sure to spread out ingredients. Cook for about 10 minutes or until shrimp are no longer pink.
  2. While shrimp are cooking, place all drizzle ingredients in a high speed blender except the grapeseed oil. Blend until well combined. Slowly add oil until mixture is creamy. Set aside.
  3. Toss all slaw ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. To assemble tacos, place shrimp mixture into a warm tortilla, top with slaw, optional toppings and drizzle with cilantro lime sauce…come on you know how to make a taco.
