Blackstone Shrimp Fajitas Recipe:

Making fajitas on the Blackstone is one of my favorite things to make. We have made steak fajitas and chicken fajitas and they always turn our perfectly cook.

The sizzling shrimp, cooked with the vegetables and tossed with the fajita seasoning makes for the perfect weeknight meal. These Shrimp Fajitas can be cooked on your griddle or a cast iron skillet.

We love cooking on the large cooking surface because I can easily cook everything at once including heating the tortilla. This simple recipe is delicious and made with easy ingredients.

What are Fajitas?

Fajitas are referred to as thin strips of meat. They are a popular Tex-Mex dish and include steak, chicken and shrimp. Fajitas are cooked on a cast iron griddle with the protein, onions and peppers.

Traditionally fajitas come sizzling hot on a cast iron dish served at your favorite Mexican Restaurant. You wrap your fajita meat with the cooked peppers and onions in a corn or flour tortilla.

How to Season Shrimp Fajitas:

When we make Shrimp Fajitas, we use Taco Seasoning and salt and pepper. This seasoning is easy to make homemade or your can easily buy the packet taco seasoning.

We love to make our own seasoning so we can adjust the ingredients. The seasoning blends that you buy at the store have additional ingredients that are not needed.

Making your own seasoning blend saves you time and money.

What is the Best Shrimp for Fajitas:

When we make Blackstone Shrimp Fajita we like to use the large, jumbo or colossal shrimp. We buy the shrimp that is already peeled and deveined.

But you can grill shrimp with the peel on. I like to keep things easy, so I look for the shrimp that is already peeled.

We prefer to buy shrimp that is uncooked and that is what this recipe calls for. But you can use the precooked shrimp but it does shrink in size when grilled.
