Chipotle Shrimp Coleslaw

So this recipe came up on my Facebook from Homesick Texan.  I love her website, and like most of the things D and I have made.  We were supposed to have this Wednesday, but D made something else.  Thursday, no one felt like peeling shrimp. Same thing on Friday.  On Saturday we finally peeled the shrimp and D made the rest.

It was very good.  A little kick but nothing crazy.  I would have again.  However for left-overs the flavor went away.  Still would have again.  Probably as a side though because the calories weren't high.

1 pound small shrimp, peeled and deveined (next time, buying cooked and peeled)
1 tablespoon kosher salt (only needed 1/4 tsp)
8 cups shredded red cabbage (used green cabbage because red was $6/lb)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 cloves garlic, finely minced (used 4)
1/4 medium red onion, diced
1/4 cup mayonnaise (used Hellman's light)
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, then add the shrimp and salt (didn't add salt). Cook until light pink and firm, about 1 to 2 minutes, then drain.

In a large bowl, stir together the cooked shrimp, (added 1/4 tsp of salt), cabbage, cilantro, garlic, and red onion. Whisk together the mayonnaise, lime juice, red wine vinegar, smoked paprika, chipotle chile powder, and cumin, then stir the dressing into the cabbage until everything is well combined. Adjust seasonings and add salt to taste.

Chill for at least one hour before serving.

Yield: 4 servings (2 Cups each)

Note from Homesick Texan: I find that a 1 1/2-pound to 2-pound red cabbage usually yields about 8 cups.
