Copycat Hard Rock Café Shrimp Fajitas


Copycat Hard Rock Café Shrimp Fajitas

2 lbs medium shrimp, shelled (I used a one pound bag of frozen shrimp.)
1 cup chopped cilantro (I used about a tablespoon of dried cilantro.)
3 minced garlic cloves (I used two.)
1/2 cup lime juice (I used the juice of one lime.)
8 (9 inch) flour tortillas (I used the 96% fat-free version.)
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 large bell peppers, thinly sliced (I used one.)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
sour cream (I used fat-free.)

Stir together shrimp, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven that has been preheated to 250 degrees.

Heat oil in a wide nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. A cast iron Dutch oven works great for this!

Add peppers and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until limp (about 10 minutes). Remove vegetables and keep warm in the oven where the tortillas are heating.

Add shrimp mixture to pan, increase heat to high, and cook, stirring often, until shrimp are done, usually about 3 - 5 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp. Return vegetables to pan with shrimp. Mix well.

Spoon shrimp mixture into tortillas, top with sour cream, and roll up.
