2.Make sauce. Combine all ingredients and set aside in a small bowl.

3.Turn fryer to 315-335 degrees or heat oil to 315-335 degrees.

4. Make batter. In a bowl combine the first 6 ingredients and salt and pepper to taste. Pour Panko breadcrumbs in a seperate bowl.

5. Dip peeled & deveined shrimp in buttermilk batter then coat with panko by gently pressing shrimp in the panko.

6.Working in batches, add shrimp to the fryer and fry until golden brown about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.

Build your tacos. I like to warm my tortilla by laying it in a warm pan. Then remove and add slaw, shrimp, and the sauce.
