Shrimp Fajitas

Serves 4

A quick and easy one-pan meal that is healthy and delicious to boot!

1 1/2-pounds jumbo shrimp peeled, and deveined
1 onion thinly sliced
2 bell peppers thinly sliced
1/4 cup olive oil (divided)
1 lime
8 tortillas


Fajita Seasoning

1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper



avocado (or guacamole),
sour cream
salsa ~ I like mango!


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the fajita seasoning ingredients.
  2. In a large bowl, add the shrimp, two tablespoons of olive oil, the juice from half a lime, and the fajita seasoning. Toss it all together until the shrimp is well coated and set it aside.
  3. Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bell peppers and onions, and sauté for 4-5 minutes or until softened and the onions have started to caramelize. Transfer to a plate.
  4. In the same skillet, add the shrimp and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they turn pink.
  5. Add the bell peppers and onions back into the skillet, toss, and squeeze more lime juice on top.
  6. Serve immediately with tortillas and toppings of your choice.
