  • 2 limes, zested and juiced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste


  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mexican oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced vertically
  • 1 red pepper, sliced vertically
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or avocado oil, divided
  • 1 lime, juiced, divided
  • 10 flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and sliced (optional)
  • 1 cup purchased or homemade pico de gallo, (optional)
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)


  1. For cilantro-lime cream, place sour cream in a small bowl with a lid. Add cilantro, zest and juice of 2 limes, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir together well, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. For fajita seasoning, combine chili powder, cayenne pepper, cumin, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, add 2 tablespoons oil, half of lime juice, and fajita seasoning. Stir together or squeeze the bag to combine. Add shrimp and mix well to coat shrimp; set aside.
  4. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir onion and peppers into the hot oil, and cook, stirring frequently, until some color begins to develop on the vegetables, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove vegetables from the skillet and set aside.
  5. Add shrimp to the same skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Return cooked vegetables to the skillet. Cook and stir until shrimp is opaque and pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Squeeze remaining lime juice over the skillet contents.
  6. Fill warm tortillas with shrimp, peppers, and onions, and garnish with avocado slices, pico de gallo, and additional cilantro, if desired. Drizzle with cilantro-lime cream.
