10-Minute Shrimp FajitasRecipe posted in: Flex™ Meals & Snacks, Snacks, Healthy Sides & Snacks, Lunches & Dinners
Shrimp Fajitas are a meal that screams lively, Friday night dinner out.
What you may not realize, however, is how perfect they are for every night of the week. High-protein, low calorie shrimp is spiced up in a way that leaves cold shrimp cocktail looking sadder than ever—and don’t get us wrong, we love shrimp cocktail as much as everyone else.
This shrimp can only be described as crispy, cumin-coated, taste-bud-firing deliciousness, paired with flavorful, subtly sweet vegetables and wrapped in the warm embrace of a whole wheat tortilla. Cooking under extreme heat for minutes at a time, results in a meal roasted to perfection and quick as ever.
Working late? Shrimp fajitas. Craving excitement? Shrimp fajitas. Watching your weight? Shrimp fajitas.
You can enjoy this delicious dish as a healthy side, a flex snack or as base for a flex lunch or dinner. Adjust your serving size according to how you choose to enjoy it. And don’t forget to log your 10-Minute Shrimp Fajitas in the NuMi App >
