Shaina from Food for My Family demonstrates that the sun is not the only thing bringing a sizzle to al fresco dining this summer with her Surf and Turf Shrimp and Portabella Fajitas.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 lime, juiced
3 portabella mushroom caps, cleaned with stems removed
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Seasoning blend, below
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/4 red onion, sliced

For the seasoning blend:
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

To serve:
8-10 warmed 8″ flour tortillas
Chopped romaine lettuce
Pico de gallo
Avocado slices
Mango/pineapple salsa

Directions:

  1. Marinate the mushrooms and the shrimp in the lime juice for 10 minutes while you prepare the seasoning blend. Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of seasoning blend over the mushroom caps and the shrimp.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a medium to large skillet or cast iron pan. Add the mushrooms to the skillet. Cook for 4 minutes over medium-high heat. Turn and continue cooking until soft and tender all the way through, another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Add the bell peppers and red onion to the skillet and cook just until seared. Vegetables should remain crisp. Remove from the skillet and set aside along with the mushroom caps.
  4. Now add the shrimp to the skillet. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side, just until they turn pink and opaque.  Remove from the heat. Slice the mushrooms into strips, and add them and the vegetables back to the skillet with the shrimp for serving.
  5. Serve immediately with warmed tortillas and toppings.

Notes: These fajitas can be made on a grill. Oil the grill grate, the mushrooms themselves, and the shrimp before grilling.
