Preapre & roast the sweet potato wedges
1 Preapre & roast the sweet potato wedges

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Cut the sweet potato into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, halve the lime crosswise. Halve, pit, and small dice the orange. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the jalapeño peppers. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling the peppers. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and the juice of 1 lime half; season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the diced orange, sliced green tops of the scallions, the juice of the remaining lime half, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the chopped jalapeño peppers as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat.

3 Cook the shrimp & poblano pepper

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Place in a bowl; season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and sliced poblano pepper in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the shrimp are slightly opaque. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

If you prefer to use a microwave, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through. If you prefer to use the oven, wrap the tortillas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack; warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through. Transfer to a work surface and carefully unwrap. Assemble the tacos using the warmed tortillas, half the lime mayo, cooked shrimp and poblano pepper, and salsa. Serve the tacos with the roasted sweet potato wedges and remaining lime mayo on the side. Enjoy!
