Mango Shrimp Fajitas

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 2-3 servings

Description

Tropical fajitas with either pineapple or mango served in a lettuce wrap.


Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil or other fat
  • 4 bell peppers (any colors), sliced
  • 1 onion, halved and sliced
  • 1/2 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 1/2 C mango, cubed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lettuce for serving
  • optional toppings (salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole,…)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. When oil is hot, add bell peppers, onion, mango, and shrimp to the skillet.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. I think these are really good with lots of pepper.
  4. Continue to cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent over-charring. The shrimp should be fully cooked and everything should be slightly charred when finished. I tried to keep my shrimp on top of the veggies so it wouldn’t overcook but if it starts to overcook, just pull them out and set aside.
  5. Serve with whatever toppings you like (I like mine plain or just with guac) and lettuce to wrap everything in.

Notes

You can use pre-cooked shrimp and just add it when the veggies are almost done cooking. It only needs to cook long enough to heat up.
