#168 Flawless Jammin Jerk Shrimp Fajitas

When Seafood and Jerk come together magic happens!! Today I am featuring a tropical sensation once again, this time with a kick to the taste buds. Grilled seafood fajitas paired with awesome ice-cold margaritas and you will start shaking your hips to the rhythm of Reggae Music. The sides are so varied and adaptable you can serve it with grated cheeses, salsa, lettuce or tomatoes. Since I love avocados and sour cream so much, you'll notice those are the favorite sides in many of my South American dishes. Leave all of the sides out, and it would still be flawless in taste!!
8 oz Raw Cleaned and deveined Shrimp
or 8 oz Salmon steaks
2 Tblspn of my very own Jerk Paste from my recipe # 154
(I refrigerated the Freshly made Jerk Paste and it stayed fresh.
My Jerk Chicken with Mango Sauce recipe also gives instructions on how to make the Jerk Paste)
6 Corn tortillas
1/2 red bell pepper sliced
1/2 green bell pepper sliced
2-3 slices of red onion
2 cloves garlic sliced.
Lime, sour cream, avocado, and /or salsa
Olive Oil and chopped Cilantro as needed.

1. There are two ways you can choose to cook the shrimp/salmon either grill or stove top.
2. I decided to make it stove top in a grill pan using just fresh shrimp.
3. Before you start make sure to rub the Jerk paste all over the cleaned shrimp/salmon.
4. Place the grill pan on the stove and add some Olive oil.
5. When the pan is heated to medium, toss in the shrimp, quickly cook the shrimp on both sides and remove.
7. Now, warm up the corn tortillas and place them on a serving plate.
8. In the same grill pan toss in the onions and garlic with a Tablepoon of Olive oil.
9. When the onions are a bit soft, add both peppers and saute quickly. Do not overcook.
10. For serving place a Tablespoon of the pepper mixture at the center of the tortilla.
11. Place your choice of seafood, flaked salmon or shrimp over it.
12. Serve with sour cream, lime, salsa, avocado and chopped cilantro.


  1. The beautiful plateer is worth grabbing.

  2. I've never tried jerk, always been curious to try it. And its most interesting that you number your recipes. Good idea.

  3. Your Fajitas is so unique. Love the presentation!

  4. flawless indeed. That sauce and seasoning looks divine on the shrimp. So succulent and rich. Avocados just top it off for me. I love pairing avocado with fish or shrimp!

  5. Aaaaah, just *look* at those big slices of avocado and the shrimps, and sour cream... mmm. I love things like this - tacos, fajitas, you name it, it's up there among my favourites.

    Beautiful recipe - I could wade through 3 or 4 of these easily! :)

  6. I LOVE jerk seasoning. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water in anticipation. Add shrimp and avocado and I'm in heaven!
