  • 18 oz. Shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper optional
  • 2 Corn Tortillas


  1. Take the tails off and clean your shrimp if it hasn’t been done already. 

  2. In a clean bowl combine the shrimp, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using it). Mix the shrimp up with the ingredients well and let it marinate for an hour in the fridge. 

  3. While the shrimp marinates, slice your bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. In a frying pan over medium high heat, add 2 tsps of olive oil to the pan and once hot sauté the peppers, onions, and mushrooms for 3-5 minutes. Or until they are as crisp/tender as you would like them to be. 

  4. Divide your bell pepper, onion and mushroom mixture into three meal prep bowls.

  5. In the same frying pan heat another teaspoon of olive oil over medium high heat and sear half of the shrimp in the bowl on both sides until browned or cooked. Flip the shrimp on the other side and do the same. Don’t cook for longer than 5 minutes. (Be careful not to over cook the shrimp) Repeat this for the last half in the bowl. 

  6. Divide the shrimp into three meal prep bowls and you now have three meals prepped!

  7. *When you’re ready to eat your Fajitas use two yellow corn tortillas to eat with your meal. Just pop them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to soften them before eating*
