I just love what I can put into these Simple Seafood Fajitas
I made these with three kinds of seafood.
Simple Seafood Fajitas
Have you ever been really excited about a new kitchen toy?
The other day I was at the grocery store where they have an aisle dedicated to seasonal items at good prices. It was in that aisle that I found something shining and calling my name. I found my new fajita skillet.
My new skillet cast iron, which makes me really happy.
It came with a wooden base as well as a cover for the handle. Lame I know, but exciting to me just the same.
Obviously, I had to race home to make something with my new skillet.
Seafood fajitas seemed like the perfect meal to make since I had just picked some up at the store. By the way, you can find a deal on a similar fajita skillet set on Amazon.
You will also need some seasoning for this recipe.
The most popular kind of seasoning to use is, of course, fajita seasoning (also available on Amazon). I also found low carb tortillas- which I use all the time for a lot of different recipes.
The recipe for Simple Seafood Fajitas
Obviously, you will need some kind of seafood to make this. The most popular seafood that people seem to put into their fajitas would be shrimp. I urge you to mix it up a bit and use something else, whether it be with or in addition to your shrimp. I have used shrimp, crab meat, and tilapia in this recipe. As long as the total seafood that is added is one pound (cleaned and prepped).
What you will need to make this.
Since this is an easy recipe, we will use easy ingredients. Yay!
- Oil (such as vegetable) – as needed
- Seasoning mix -1 packet + ingredients on package (usually water)
- Seafood, such as shrimp, crab, tilapia..- 1 lb (cleaned and prepped)
- Green Bell Pepper- 1 sliced into strips
- Red Pepper (your choice-I use bell)- 1 sliced into strips
- Onion- 1 small sliced
How to make this.
- Prepare by slicing fish into bite size pieces or cleaning and removing tails from shrimp. Prepare the seasoning as indicated on package and set aside. Set pan on medium heat and heat a 1 -2 teaspoons of oil. Amount of oil will depend on the size of your skillet and the amount that you need to cover it.
- Place the fish into a medium bowl. Cover the fish with the marinade and toss. Set aside.
- When the skillet has heated up, add the peppers and onion and cook for about 4-5 minutes or until almost done. Remove from skillet and set aside. Now coat the skillet with another 1 -2 teaspoons of oil.
- Add the fish to the skillet and cook until done, stirring as needed. Shrimp should be pink for example.
- Once the fish has cooked, turn the heat down to low and add the vegetables that you have set aside. Warm until ready to serve.
Tip: Prep your seafood in advance and allow to sit in a zip top bag with marinade.
