Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. raw shrimps
  • ½ green bell pepper julienned
  • ½ yellow bell pepper julienned
  • ½ red bell pepper julienned
  • ½ small purple onion julienned
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Marinade

  • 1 ½ Tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½  tsp salt
  • Juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  • In a bowl, start by marinating the shrimps with the marinade ingredients. Refrigerate while preparing your other ingredients
  •  Slice up the bell peppers and onion
  •  Heat up a skillet with one tablespoon of EVOO and cook the shrimps for about 5 minutes then set aside in a bowl 
  • In the same skillet heat up 1 tablespoon of EVOO and sauté the veggies until they are tender (around 3-4 minutes
  •  Add the cooked shrimps and sauté everything together for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve while hot and enjoy!

Notes

  • Take care not to overcook the shrimp or they can turn rubbery. Shrimp are done when they are turning translucent and curling up upon themselves.  The outsides will turn a pinkish-orange in color.
  • If you use frozen shrimp in this recipe, ensure that they are fully thawed before cooking them.
  • Shrimp should be shelled, deveined and with tails removed before cooking.
  • Shrimp fajitas can be served with tortillas, rice, quinoa, salads or any side dish you prefer.
