Saute garlic, salt, and onions for 4 minutes, stirring often.
Mix in peppers, tomatillos, cumin, and oregano.
Simmer 4 to 5 minutes.
Puree in food processor fitted with steel blade, or use a blender.
Mix oil with cumin.
Brush shrimp with flavored oil.
Preheat stovetop grill.
Cook shrimp over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes, turning once.
Shrimp will turn opaque and become slightly firm.
Do not overcook or they will become tough.
Warm tortillas, one at a time, just a few seconds on each side on the grill.
Grill onion slices, 1 minute per side.
Remove from grill and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Arrange 1/4 cup of grilled shrimp in center of each tortilla.
Place 1 slice of onion over shrimp.
Top with 2 to 3 tablespoons of sauce.
Roll up the tortilla and set in a flat casserole dish.
Cover tortillas with remaining sauce.
