  • 1 bag (12 oz.) bag of broccoli slaw or other favorite slaw mix
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced or other thinly sliced vegetable of your choosing, optional
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. honey or sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped + more for garnish
  • Cooking spray (or Misto – see above)
  • 1 lb. large shrimp, deveined and shelled
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 1/2 cups of crushed cornflakes
  • 4 tbsp. light mayo
  • 1 tbsp. sweet Thai sauce
  • 2 tsp. sriracha (more or less depending on desired spiciness)
  • 12 tortillas (corn or flour – whichever is preferred), warmed


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place slaw mixture and additional vegetables (if using) in a bowl. In a separate small bowl, whisk together lime juice, apple cider vinegar, salt, honey, and 2 tbsp. of cilantro. Pour vinegar mixture over vegetables and toss. Set aside.
  3. Spray sheet pan with cooking spray or line sheet pan with silicone baking mat.
  4. Place flour, eggs, and crushed cornflakes in 3 separate bowls.
  5. Working in batches, dip shrimp in the flour, then the egg, then the crushed cornflakes, coating the shrimp all over. Place shrimp on the sheet pan, evenly spaced apart.
  6. Once all shrimp are placed on sheet pan, spray shrimp with cooking spray (or Misto), place pan in oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, flip shrimp, spray with cooking spray (or Misto), and place back in oven for 5 minutes or until shrimp are opaque when pierced with a knife. Remove from oven.
  7. While shrimp are in oven, mix together mayo, Thai sauce, and sriracha in a small bowl for the bang bang sauce.
  8. Assemble tacos by layering warm tortilla shell with slaw, then crispy shrimp, followed by a drizzle of the bang bang sauce. Serve extra slaw on the side. Serve immediately.
