  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Stack tortillas and wrap tightly in foil. Bake about 10 minutes or until heated through.
  4. For roasted corn slaw, coat a large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add frozen corn all at once to hot skillet and spread in a single layer. Cook, without stirring, for 3 minutes; then stir. Cook, without stirring, for 3 minutes more or until corn is light golden brown. Transfer to a medium bowl. Cool completely. Set skillet aside.
  5. When corn is cool, stir in mayonnaise, lime juice, and the 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add cabbage, onion, and parsley; stir to coat. Set corn slaw aside.
  6. Return skillet to medium-high heat. Add shrimp mixture; cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp are opaque.

From the Test Kitchen


Tamarind concentrate can be found in Asian or Mexican sections of large grocery stores. If you cant find it, simmer 1 cup tamarind juice until it is reduced to a syrupy consistency.
