In medium bowl, mix lime peel, lime juice, mayonnaise, sugar, salt and red pepper. Add cabbage and cilantro; stir to coat. Set aside.

In another medium bowl, mix shrimp and taco seasoning mix; stir to coat.

In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add shrimp mixture; cook and stir 2 to 4 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Remove from heat.

Divide shrimp filling among heated taco shells; top with slaw.

A shrimp's size is measured by the number of individual shrimp it takes to make up a pound. We used medium-size shrimp labeled 41/50 in this recipe, meaning there are between 41 and 50 of this size shrimp in a pound. The description of size can vary, depending on market. If you want to add some extra zip to these tacos, try a drizzle of sriracha or your favorite hot sauce on top of the coleslaw.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
