Dinner on a Stick! Shrimp Fajita Skewers... yum.

Suzanne Shaw  /  5/26/2019  /  Facebook  /  Twitter  / 

Dinner on a stick is as fun as it is delicious. I love fajitas, but in a restaurant, they can be an expensive meal.

A pound of shrimp, a bell pepper, a couple of slices of bacon and some simple salsa ingredients are under $10. When was the last time you had such a nice meal for four people for that little? My dinner on a stick is a tasty Fajitas with a Creamy Mexican Salsa. This is the perfect recipe for a family bbq and the sauce is out of this world. The secret is that the creamy sauce makes it all so easy for a post-op to eat!

Ingredients

For the Shrimp Skewers
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Olive Oil
  • A packet of Fajita Seasoning
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked until just barely crisp and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • For the Creamy Salsa
  • 1 small can Tomatillos, found near the jars of salsa and canned chilies
  • 1 small bunch fresh cilantro
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/2 medium white onion, roughly chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 6 ounces Plain Greek Yogurt, one of the single serving sizes is perfect
  • Instructions

  • In a large bowl drizzle the shrimp with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle about 1/2 of the packet of seasoning. Stir to coat. If using metal skewers, spray well with cooking spray. Thread the shrimp, bacon, peppers, and tomatoes on the skewers - set aside on a platter.
  • For the sauce, puree the tomatillos, cilantro, avocado, onion, lime juice, and salt. Add the yogurt and process again until smooth and creamy. Chill while you cook the shrimp skewers.
  • Grill until shrimp are bright pink and just cooked through. Remove to a plate and serve with the salsa on the side
