Shrimp, Mexican Chorizo & Pineapple Tacos with Tequila & Lime


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3/4 lb. fresh (Mexican) chorizo, bulk or cut from casings
  • 3/4 lb. medium shrimp—deveined, tails off and split horizontally along vein line
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 fresh pineapple—peeled, cored and cut into small cubes
  • 1 bunch spring onions or scallions, sliced on an angle
  • 2 jalapeños, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup (a handful) cilantro or parsley, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 shots (3 oz.) silver tequila
  • 2 limes—1 juiced (about 2 tbsp.), 1 cut into wedges
  • 12–16 6-inch corn tortillas
  • Shredded white or red cabbage
  • Hot sauce, preferably Green Tabasco or Frank’s RedHot


1. In a large skillet, heat the oil, two turns of the pan, over medium-high to high. Add the chorizo and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until crispy at the edges, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the shrimp and season with salt and pepper; add the pineapple and toss with tongs until the shrimp is opaque in the centers and the pineapple is lightly browned, about 3 minutes more. Add the spring onions, jalapeños, cilantro, and garlic; toss until the garlic is aromatic and the spring onions wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tequila; stir until evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add the lime juice and remove from the heat.

2. Cook the tortillas directly over a gas flame or under the broiler until charred in spots, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

3. Serve the shrimp filling with the tortillas, cabbage, hot sauce, and lime wedges.
