Shrimp fajitas make a tasty and quick meal when you're pushed for time.
You get protein, vegetables and carbs all in one.
Either use your regular seasoning or make your own following these instructions.
For the seasoning
Mix all these ingredients together - you'll use 2 Tablespoons of this, which is about a third of it, so store the rest in an airtight container.
Put the shrimp, onion, pepper, zuchhini, 1 T oil and lemon juice into a bowl. Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons of the fajita mix over and give it all a good mix.
Leave for 30 minutes or so if you want to for the flavors to amalgamate.
Heat the oil in a pan and pile the mixture in. Keep stirring it as it cooks and it will be ready in 3 to 5 minutes.
Divide this mixture between 8 flour tortillas and serve hot.
You can serve with salsa, soured cream, jalapenos, guacamole - I like some thinly sliced fresh tomato and cucumber on the side, dressed with a squeeze of lemon and sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper.
Mexican fajitas are very popular - the wrap makes them very portable and they would go well in a lunch box, on a picnic or eating informally outdoors.
The seasoning mix is so much cheaper than buying a commercial packet, but if you don't have the time or the different spices in your cupboard, then a packet is fine. There are some very good mixes out there and you would normally get a choice of mild, medium or hot.
