Why make this dish?

For the Shrimp – 1 lb raw shrimp, peeled & deveined – 3/4 tsp kosher salt – 1/2 tsp smoked paprika – 1/4 tsp garlic powder – 1/4 tsp ground cumin – 1/8 tsp ground black pepper – 2 tsp oil For the Fajitas – 1 large onion – 2 bell peppers – 1 tbsp oil avocado or olive – 1/2 tsp kosher salt For Serving – Tortillas – Avocado – Chopped cilantro – Lime wedges


Prep the onions by slicing them into 1 inch slices. Stick a toothpick in them to keep them from falling apart and oil them up.


Prep the bell peppers by removing the tops & seeds, then slicing them in half. Place them in a bowl with oil & salt and set aside.


Prep the shrimp by drying them off with a paper towel, then combining the seasoning in a small bowl. Pour it over the shrimp and use your hands to mix together.


Slide the shrimp onto metal skewers, placing them carefully so they don't fall off during grilling.


Preheat the grill to 400F then place the onions in a single layer over direct heat. Close the lid & cook for 4 minutes. Flip the onions & place the bell peppers on. Close the lid, cooking for another 3 minutes.


Make sure your grill grates are clean! This helps ensure your food won't stick to the grill.

Remove the shrimp from the grill. Slice up the onions & bell peppers, then place on a platter for serving with tortillas, avocado, & cilantro!
