Mighty Grilled Shrimp Fajitas
It’s an exceedingly simple but winning formula for the summer: grill some mix of your favorite veggies, seafood and meat and serve with a bright sauce in an OMM fresh-milled tortilla. Fajitas are a natural family pleaser. Serve up with your choice of sauces, avocado, cilantro and beer! Mighty Grilled Shrimp Fajitas


1 ¼ lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined  

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper  

½ tsp. ground cumin 

1/4 tsp. pimenton de la Vera or chipotle powder  

3 Tbs. olive oil  

2 bell peppers (I like to mix colors), cored, seeded, and cut into 2-inch wedges 

1 red onion, cut into ¼-inch disks  

8 OMM tortillas  

1 ripe avocado 

1 lime, cut into wedges  


1. Prepare a medium charcoal fire or light up the gas grill to medium high. In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with ¾ tsp. salt ½ tsp. pepper, the cumin, and pimenton and then 1 Tbs. of the oil.  In another bowl, toss the peppers and onion with ½ tsp. each salt and pepper and the remaining 2 Tbs. of oil. 

2. Thread the shrimp and vegetables onto 4 sets of skewers. Grill, flipping after a couple of minutes, until the shrimp are browned and cooked through and the vegetables are browned and tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

3. Grill the tortillas to heat through, 10 to 20 seconds. Then serve with the avocado and lime and let folks assemble their own fajitas.
