I'm a little confused that this recipe got mixed reviews as I LOVE IT! I did make very minor changes, which probably would make a difference. I added 1/2 tsp of cayenne to the marinade for a kick and I typically only use about 3/4 lb of shrimp (obviously making the seasonings more intense). This is honestly in my top 5 recipes I've found on this site. It's light, healthy, quick, and full of flavor. Thanks for sharing, this makes dieting so much easier. Read More

I was looking forward to trying these because I love all of the ingredients. Unfortunately we just didn't care for them. They were pretty bland. Read More

Really good! I realized before dinner I didn't have enough tortillas so I just served it over rice and it was great. Okay so I don't like zuccini - I swapped it out for a can of black beans. Very good. Read More

This was very quick and easy. I used canned corn instead of frozen and I cooked the shrimp right in with the veggies to save pots (I hate dishes). It was really tasty and quick enough for a weeknight dinner! Will definitely make again. Thanks! Read More

My wife and I thought this was great although we did make a few changes. We didnt have any corn so we sub'd in bell pepper and then added about a half teaspoon cayanne to the marinade fallowed the rest and it came out great. We will be making this often. Read More

Quick and simple for a little heat and some Tex-Mex flavor; take a dozen or so of tomatillos 2 red onions 1/4rd 6 jalapenos toss them in a little olive oil and roast in a 400 degree oven until they begin to brown about 20 min. Remove from oven season with s&p and puree in a food processor. Spread this mixture on your tortilla before you stuff it with the shrimp mixture. use as much as your tongue can handle. Enjoy...

Everyone at my table enjoyed these fajitas. Very easy to make. I used cooked frozen shrimp. I think it would be best to use raw shrimp for this. I served this with fresh avocado and some fresh salsa. Very yummy. Read More

Very good recipe-- Can be altered I think to taste and ingredients on hand-- I added cherry tomatoes towards the end and a fresh ear of corn--and served with sliced avocados and salsa. What I liked especially about this recipe was the marinade and the delightful taste it gave the shrimp. Read More

Pretty good! I made them as written except I also added some fresh chopped tomato in at the end. They could have used a little more seasoning of some sort but I still enjoyed them. Thanks! Read More
