For slaw: Place everything except sour cream, cabbage and cheese in a food processor. Pulse to combine. When mostly smooth, add sour cream and pulse until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. In a large bowl, toss dressing with cabbage and cheese. Set aside while you prepare shrimp.

For shrimp: Preheat the salt plate in the oven or on the grill to at least 450 degrees. Toss shrimp with choice of seasoning and thread shrimp onto skewers; it’s easier to cook shrimp on the brick if they are skewered. When salt plate is ready, set shrimp skewers on the plate and bake for 2 minutes per side. Remove skewers from salt plate and let shrimp cool.

To serve: Divide shrimp among the tortillas and top each with slaw.
