3 limes
Salt and pepper
1 onion, sliced

Mix together sour cream, juice from half a lime, 1/4 cup cilantro, and a pinch of salt. Cover and refrigerate. In a large glass or plastic bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons oil, juice from 1 lime, and remaining ¼ cup cilantro. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes. Heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet. Sautee onions and peppers for a few minutes. Add shrimp to the skillet and cook shrimp for a minute or two on each side until it turns pink. Season with salt and pepper. Squeeze remaining half lime over the top. Serve shrimp and veggies on warm tortillas with a dollop of cilantro cream. You can garnish with extra cilantro and cut extra lime into wedges to squeeze on top.

Also delicious served with my homemade Pico de gallo!
