Chop, cook, wrap! Sounds easy enough.
Chop, cook, wrap! Sounds easy enough.

Shrimp fajitas are a great quick meal because you can buy the shrimp already peeled. Green peppers and onion come pre-diced in stores, but you'll want slices for your fajitas, so you'll have to do this yourself. Toss the shrimp, onions and peppers in a pan with some olive oil, chili pepper, cumin, salt and pepper, and dash of soy sauce, and cook it all over medium to high heat until the peppers and onion are soft. Top with fresh cilantro and serve in flour tortillas.
