Everything You’ll Need To Make this Shrimp Fajitas:

To make this Garlic Habanero Shrimp, I use my cast iron. Any non-stick skillet works. I also opted for a bag of wild frozen shrimp. It’s reasonably priced and stays fresh for a long time. Place the frozen shrimp in a sink-safe basin or colander and run it under cold water for 5 minutes, tossing it about every now and then to make sure it’s all thawed. Then, transfer to a large mixing bowl.

So now this is what’s so special about these shrimp. Combine garlic cloves, salt, and half of the habanero pepper in a mortar and pestle to create a paste to season the shrimp. Then, add lemon pepper and black pepper. Toss it all together until the shrimp is well coated and set it aside to marinate.

Add oil to your skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the onion for about 5 minutes, or until transparent and caramelized. Then add the shrimp and cook them on each side for about 2-3 minutes.
