This week I decided to try something new! I can tell you that my husband does not like it when I tell him we are trying something new! There have been many times that I attempted a clean recipe that we took right to the trash and made scrambled eggs instead. In one of the Tosca Reno cookbooks there is this beautiful stuffed pumpkin recipe that I was dying to try! I decided that around the holiday was a great time! Unfortunately they looked pretty but they tasted awful. Part of that I attribute to the fact that I didn’t cook the pumpkins long enough and they were hard. But we live and we learn right!!
So this week I found a recipe online that I tweaked to make it my own. It was shrimp fajitas. I am a Mexican food lover thru and thru so this made my taste buds twitch just thinking about it! I had everything in the fridge and freezer so it was a no brainer of a meal.
I have to say hands down this was a winner and I actually thought to myself, when can I eat it again!!
|Fiesta Lime Seasoning|
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 lb of shrimp peeled and deveined
- Fiesta lime seasoning to taste (Mrs. Dash-salt free)
- 1/4 tsp himalayan sea salt
- 1 small onion thinly sliced
- 1 red pepper thinly sliced
- Hard or soft whole grain tortillas or you can use leaf lettuce instead of the shell
Then I had topping to go with it. Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, black beans, avocado, tomato, cheese for the kids, lettuce, salsa, brown rice and steamed corn.
Place oil in pan and heat on medium. In a small bowl combine the shrimp, fiesta lime seasoning, sea salt and stir. Then place in pan and cook 4 minutes or until done.
Remove shrimp from pan and add in the onion and peppers and brown. Stir in shrimp and toss to combine then spoon into whole grain tortillas hard or soft!
This was a fabulous dinner that we all enjoyed! You must try it!
