Oven Roasted Shrimp Tacos with Sour Cream Sauce

I used to work at a Mexican restaurant back in college. Before I started working I wasn't a fan of Mexican, but by the time I was done working there I definitely had a few favorite. I guess it was a good thing working there because I still remember some of their recipes and I can whip it up whenever I like. Of course it doesn't taste exactly the same but it's close enough. All that inspired the taco I made last weekend.  I was going to make my own fresh salsa and guacamole, two things that I actually still remember the exact recipe, but hunger, time and a couple other things  got in the way of that.

1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tbsp mayonnase
1 1/2 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp chilli powder
12 large shrimp; peeled, washed and dried
1 1/2 tbsp butter, melted
1 large garlic clove, minced
4 6-inch corn/flour tortillas
1 cup shredded green cabbage
Shredded Cheese
Blue Chips
Mild Salsa

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, and chilli powder. Set aside.
2. In a small combine butter and garlic. Place shrimp in a baking dish, season with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the shrimp with the garlic butter and toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
3. Place and roast in oven at 425degrees F for  8 to 10 minutes.
4. Warm tortillas for about 20 seconds on each side in a  dry and hot pan. Layer with cabbage, shrimp, sour cream sauce and shredded  cheese. Serve with chips and salsa. Enjoy!
