I got such a great response when I posted my Chicken Burrito Bowl with Cilantro Lime Rice that I decided to do a similar type of Mexican main dish. These Loaded Shrimp Fajita Bowls have that same deconstructed vibe. They’re an awesome option if you’re craving something Mexican but don’t want anything heavy with tortillas, rice and beans.

They are made with napa cabbage, stir-fried peppers and onions and chili-spiced shrimp and super easy to put together.

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp coriander
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup assorted colored peppers sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion sliced
Guacamole
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • Juice of half lime
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin

Instructions
  1. To Cook the Shrimp and Vegetables
  2. In a large skillet, heat the avocado oil, then add the shrimp along with the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, coriander and salt/pepper to taste. Cook until the shrimp is opaque, then transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  6. Add the cilantro, lime juice, cumin and garlic powder. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and mix again until all the flavors are well blended.

    This was amazing! So filling and I felt great eating it. Also easy and quick to make.
    I didnt use avocado oil and some of the powders, but it still worked quite well
