\N \N Or smallest shrimp available
1.00 teaspoon Paprika

In a mixing bowl, stir together flours, add milk and scallions and stir to form batter. Add shrimp and paprika and refrigerate 30 minutes. Meanwhile, place mint, cumin, oregano, garlic and ¼ cup oil in a blender and blend until smooth. Add vinegar, season with salt and pepper and pour into a serving bowl. Heat remaining oil in 3 nonstick pans until smoking. Drop shrimp batter into pans to form 3-inch pancakes (about 2 tablespoons batter each) and cook until golden brown and crisp at edges. Remove to plate and keep in a warm oven. Continue until all the batter is finished. Serve warm with mojo. This recipe yields 12 tortillas.
