Shrimp Fajitas!
You're going to need:
-1 pound of Shrimp
-1 bell pepper (I used half of a red and yellow one)
-1 small onion
-1 garlic clove
-1-2 tbs olive oil
-a handful of chopped fresh cilantro (or dried if you don't have fresh)
-a dash of Cayenne pepper
-salt & pepper
-lime juice (fresh is best)

Chop up your peppers, onions, and mince your garlic. Mmmm.....garlic....

Toss all of your chopped veggies in a bowl, salt & pepper them, add 1Tbs of oil, and mix it all up and get the veggies all nice and coated.

Add your veggies to a hot skillet and cook it until the peppers are tender, but still have a little crunch. Remove veggies (put 'em back in your bowl) and set it to the side while you cook your shrimp.

Ok, now for the shrimp! Salt & pepper, add a dash of Cayenne pepper (I used WAAAAAY too much), and your cilantro if you're using dried. Mix  it all up so all the shrimp are seasoned evenly. Then throw them into a nice hot skillet (add more oil if you need to). Cook about 2 minutes on each side until they're nice and pink.

Add your peppers back to the skillet, mix it up and heat through.

I topped mine with mock Cafe Rio dressing, napa cabbage, and tomato. I wish I would have had some sour cream and guacamole cause that would have made it that much better.

For the past month, I've been staring at shrimp at the grocery store every time I go. I only haven't bought them because I haven't been able to think of anything to do with them - yet.

Thanks! I'll try this on the weekend.

Super yum! But the question is: can they be made over a campfire??

That looks awesome, and your onions are so perfectly cut! I suck at chopping.
