 15 Minute Shrimp Fajitas

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons avocado or canola oil (divided)

  • 1 lb (454g) raw shrimp (peeled and deveined)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt 

  • 2 bell peppers (228g) (any color, thinly sliced)

  • 1 medium (331g) yellow onion (thinly sliced)

  • 8 “Mission” corn tortillas

Optional garnishes: fresh cilantro, red onion, jalapenos, radishes, salsa, sour cream, avocado, shredded cheese (macros not included)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or spray well with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl, toss 1 tablespoon of the oil, shrimp, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Spread the seasoned shrimp in a single, even layer on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Roast for 8-10 minutes until just pink and cooked through.

  4. While the shrimp is roasting, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over high heat in a large skillet. Add the sliced bell peppers and onion to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes (without stirring), until the undersides are golden and well seared. Toss the veggies and cook for another 3-4 minutes until just softened. Remove from the heat.

  5. Serve the fajita veggies and roasted shrimp along with the tortillas. Garnish with your preferred toppings.
