Shrimp and Vegetables

  • 1/2 pound large raw wild-caught shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 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


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • Juice of half lime
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Bowl Assembly

  • 1/2 head of napa cabbage
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde
  • 1 roma tomato chopped
  • 2 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 corn on the cob cooked
  • 2 stalks of green onions chopped
  • Lime wedges


  • To Cook the Shrimp and Vegetables
  • 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.
  • In the same pan used to cook the shrimp, transfer the peppers and the onions, season with salt and pepper and saute for a few minutes until they soften. You can keep the peppers and the onions separated in the pan or mix them all together.
  • For the Guacamole
  • Scoop out the flesh of the avocado into a bowl and mash with a fork to your desired consistency.
  • 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.
  • To Arrange the Fajita Bowls
  • In two medium size bowls, layer the napa cabbage and toss it with the salsa verde. Then, add the tomatoes, peppers, onions, shrimp, sour cream and guacamole. Add half a corn on the cob.
  • Garnish with green onions and lime, if you desire
  • Enjoy cold or warm!
