Once hot, add marinated shrimp and sear well on one side, 45-90 seconds depending on the size of the shrimp. Flip shrimp over and repeat, take care not to overcook the shrimp. You may need to cook in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.

  2. To assemble taco: Place green papaya salad in the center of a warm corn tortilla. Top the papaya salad with the seared lemongrass coconut shrimp. Streak the shrimp with 1 teaspoon of Yellowbird Blue Agave Sriracha sauce and garnish with cilantro. Serve tacos with a lime wedge.

FOR THE SHRIMP

  1. In a blender, combine all marinade ingredients and puree until smooth.

  2. Place shrimp in a small bow and cover with the marinade.

  3. Set bowl aside in fridge, covered, for at least 4 hours.

FOR THE PAPAYA SALAD

  1. Combine lime juice, vinegar, agave, fish sauce, garlic, ginger and lemongrass in a small bowl and whisk together to combine ingredients thoroughly. Set aside.

  2. In another bowl, combine papaya, cucumber, carrot, onion, mint, cilantro and chiles. Pour dressing over the vegetables and mix well.

  3. Let salad sit covered in the fridge for at least 6 hours before use.
