We were supposed to have shrimp fajitas last night, but I had forgotten to defrost the shrimp, so instead we went to CPK. Brett and I split everything. We got Spinach and Artichoke Dip, a BBQ Chicken Pizza, and Apple Crisp. Everything was yummy except the ice cream on the apple crisp was very icy and actually crunched. The good news is that I filled out an online survey and earned a free appetizer or dessert. I love free stuff!
Thank goodness Brett reminded me to defrost the shrimp last night before bed, because I probably would have forgotten again! This is a recipe based on the chicken fajitas my parents make. The marinade is exactly the same, I just use shrimp instead of chicken (remember I have a problem with raw chicken) and I saute instead of grill. It calls for some olive oil, salsa, garlic, lime juice (I used lemon juice this time,) bell peppers, and red onion. Since shrimp cooks so quickly, I dump everything into the pan and pull out the shrimp before I start to cook. I get the onion and bell pepper all tender and then I add the shrimp back in for a few minutes.
Here is my fajita all ready to eat. Believe me, you don't want to see what a mess I made of it. Brett, of course, kept his nice and neat.
In case any of you are interested, I posted the recipes for tortilla soup and cheesy mexican rice under the comments section of that post. I think from now on, I will post the recipes like that.
