    Did you think I was going to leave you hanging with nothing to make with the fajita seasoning?

    Why a shrimp fajita bowl?

    I’m always trying to come up with ways to make dinner fast and shrimp is one of the fastest and healthiest dinner options.

    I’m still very much about my proteins, carbs, and fats and I love shrimp because they’re low fat, decent protein, and low carb.

    Pair it with a bowl of rice and you’ve got a complete meal, including your veggies!

    Can I make this with something other than shrimp?

    Yes! You can use chicken or steak with this.

    I actually have a slow cooker chicken fajita recipe on my site that you could make too.

    Can you make this vegetarian?

    Yep, just omit the seafood or meat and make these into vegetable fajitas instead!

    Can you serve this in a tortilla instead of with a bowl of rice?

    Yes! Just make warm up the tortilla and load up with your favorite toppings!

    Can you use frozen or fresh shrimp?

    I’ve made it with both and it works just fine! Just make sure you thaw the frozen shrimp.

    How spicy is this?

    It is as spicy as you want to make it.

    If you use my fajita seasoning, then it’s spicy because I made my fajita seasoning spicy.

    But that fajita seasoning is customizable.

    So I guess what I’m saying is…it’s as spicy as you want it to be.

    Can I make this ahead of time?

    Reheating shrimp can be tricky because they can get tough but if you’re okay with that, then yes, you can make it ahead of time!

    Can I use marinade the shrimp in the fajita seasoning?

    I would make it into like a paste or liquid and marinade the shrimp in a bag or container.
