Shrimp is naturally lean and a nice change of pace from chicken or beef fajitas. And, it's quick cooking!
Ingredients:
4 low-fat whole wheat tortillas
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup fresh lime or lemon juice
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 teaspoon Mexican oregano
1 tsp chili powder
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tsp canola oil
1 medium, onion sliced vertically
1/2 red pepper, cut into strips
1/2 green pepper, cut into strips
Directions:
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap tortillas in foil and warm them for 15 minutes.
2 Combine cilantro, lime juice, cumin, oregano, chili powder and garlic in a glass bowl. Add shrimp, stir well and marinate for 15 minutes.
3 Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Sauté onion and pepper for a 3-4 minutes, until softened.
4 Remove vegetables from skillet and keep warm. Add shrimp with the marinade; sauté until just pink, about 3 minutes.
5 Return vegetables to the skillet and cook for 1-2 more minutes, until heated through.

7 ENJOY!
