Salmon & Shrimp Fajitas – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Salmon is a favorite fish of mine and I love fajitas too, so I created a Mexican classic that has two types of seafood, that will make your taste buds jump.  Creating homemade fajitas is a nice addition to your meal repertoire because they are both fun to prepare as a family and good ole’ healthy eating.

Salmon & Shrimp Fajitas have nice texture and incredible seafood flavor.  The combination of the two kinds of fish stuffed into a warm tortilla with a dollop of fresh salsa and guacamole is just what the doctor ordered.

The the caramelized onions and peppers add a nice sweetness to the dish and if you are really in a healthful mood, wrap them up in Boston lettuce leaves and crunch your way to a summer swim suite season.

3.  Make a well in the center of pan and add salmon and shrimp. Cook seafood for 2 minutes without stirring, to sear slightly.  Then, stir the seafood gently and squeeze 1/2 lime over the top.  Place lid on top of pan and continue to cook for 3 minutes.
