Shop the Sale: Shrimp Fajita Bowls


Shrimp Fajita BowlsI just got back from a long weekend visiting my sister in Southern California. You know, home of all things healthy and homegrown.

It was amazing.

We ran to the grocery store on the first night there to get some supplies for dinner, and it was like a rainbow had exploded in the store with all the beautiful, fresh fruits and vegetables, much like I feel when I walk into the produce section at Brookshire’s.

We decided to make Shrimp Fajita Bowls because then everyone (the six in her family plus me and our other sister) could mix and match what we wanted to put in our bowl, but everyone would still be happy.

Shrimp Fajita Bowls

Ingredients:
1 lb Gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails removed
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 cup long-grain rice
2 cups sugar snap peas
2 cups carrots, shredded
1 cup cabbage, shredded
2 cups assorted bell peppers, julienned
1 white onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup purple onion, thinly sliced
1 pint button mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
2 Tbs garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin
1 avocado, diced
prepared salsa

Directions:
Cook rice according to package directions. Set aside.

Add olive oil to a large skillet, and heat over medium heat until fragrant and shimmering.

Sauté shrimp until they are pink through, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside. Add remaining olive oil, snap peas, carrots, cabbage, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic and cumin. Sauté until onions and peppers have softened, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp back into pan and heat through.

Scoop rice into bowls. Top with shrimp and vegetable mixture, and add salsa and avocado, if desired.

If you have more selective eaters, sauté ingredients separately and serve “salad bar” style.
