Equipment

  • skillet

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 3 bell peppers (orange, yellow and green), cut into strips
  • 1/2 white or yellow onion, cut in half and sliced
  • 1/4 purple cabbage, sliced (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 ounces large raw shrimp (clean, shell-and-tail off)
  • 1 ounce taco seasoning mix (original)
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 large and juicy lime
  • 1-2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped
  • 1-2 avocado(s), sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 4-6 gluten-free tortillas or other of your choice If on a keto diet, use lettuce instead
  • sour cream (optional)

Instructions

  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil and cook bell pepper strips and onion for about 6-8 minutes or until softened. Season with salt and pepper and place onto a plate. 

  • Then add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil to the pan and cook shrimp seasoned with a mixture of taco seasoning and chili pepper for about 4 minutes or until cooked. Sprinkle on lime juice. 
  • Last, arrange cooked shrimp and vegetables in the skillet, add sliced avocado, jalapenos, lime wedges, and fresh cilantro or parsley.  Serve with gluten-free tortillas or lettuce instead, and enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

  • I used store-bought gluten-free spinach tortillas, but you can serve with any tortilla of your choice.
  • ARRANGING A FAJITA/WINE BAR:  
ON A SMALL TABLE/COUNTER TOP/COFFEE TABLE: Lay out skillet of Spicy Taco Shrimp Fajitas, serving silverware, and tortillas placed inside of a tortilla basket to keep them warm (or alternatively, a platter covered with a warm clean napkin and aluminum foil).
Also, lay out paper baskets to arrange tacos in, or dinner plates, napkins, wine glasses, and a bottle of chilled Sutter Home White Zinfandel. If desired, decorate table with a vase of colorful flowers or any decorative Tex-Mex item.  Eat and drink to the sound of a nice music soundtrack, and have a great time.
