Sizzling Shrimp Fajitas
- 450 grams Marina Del Rey Wild Argentinian Shrimp (thawed & peeled) Size 20-30. 1 pound
Dry Taco Seasoning
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 red onion diced
- 1 jalapeño slice into circles (seeds optional)
- 3 peppers. (1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow) sliced into 1 ½ inch long strips
- lime wedges for serving optional
- flour tortillas
- In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, smoked paprika, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt & pepper. (Set some of the dry rub seasoning to sprinkle on the vegetables in Step #6.) Place the shrimp on a plate and season both sides with the dry rub. Set the shrimp aside.
- Preheat a cast iron griddle (or large pan) over medium heat on your grill or stovetop.
- Pour one tablespoon of oil on the griddle and add the onions. Let the onions cook down slowly as the cast iron heats up, stirring occasionally (about 5 minutes). Turn the heat to medium-high, then add the peppers and jalapeños. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender-firm and slightly charred on the edges.
- Remove the vegetables to a plate, set aside.
- Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the griddle, then add the shrimp, without overcrowding them. Cook shrimp for 1 ½ – 2 minutes, flip and cook for 1 ½- 2 minutes more (until shrimp are cooked through). Remove the shrimp to a separate plate, turn off the grill.
- Then add back the peppers, onions & jalapeños back on the griddle and toss in some of the dry rub seasoning. Add the shrimp on top of the vegetables and serve on the sizzling hot griddle.
- Serve the warmed flour tortillas and toppings on the side and let everyone assemble their own fajitas.
