  • 1/4 cup      canola oil
  • 1 white      onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 pounds      shrimp, peeled, deveined, and cut lengthwise
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons      butter
  • 1 jalapeño      chile, stem removed, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons      chopped garlic (from about four garlic cloves)
  • 1/2 bunch      Italian parsley, stems discard, leaves chopped
  • 16 corn      tortillas
  • 1 lime,      quartered


  1. Pour the canola oil into a large skillet set over high heat. When just starting to smoke, add the onions and stir. Cook until they just start to turn soft, stirring constantly, about one minute. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are mostly pink.
    1. Add the butter, jalapeño, and garlic, and cook, stirring often, until the garlic is very fragrant, about one minute. Season with salt, and cook until the shrimp are completely cooked, about 30 seconds. Turn off the heat, and stir in the parsley.
    2. Spoon a little of the shrimp filling into each tortilla. Serve with the lime wedges.
  1. Heat      a second skillet over medium heat. Add as many tortillas as will fit in      one layer, and warm them a few seconds on each side until soft. Set aside      and cover with a towel. Repeat until all the tortillas are warm.
