Shredded, ready-to-eat cabbage and carrots are found in the produce section of the supermarket.

They make preparing homemade coleslaw a breeze. I prefer to add my own dressing to it.

Bought coleslaw is usually dripping in mayonnaise and sometimes has added sugar.

Helpful hints

• Any type of shrimp can be used.

• Lemon or lime juice can be used instead of bottled Key lime juice.

• Buy shelled shrimp or ask for the shrimp to be shelled when you buy it.


• Make coleslaw and let marinate while preparing shrimp and sauce.

• Boil shrimp.

• Make sauce.
