Equipment

  • Blackstone Griddle

Ingredients

  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 Shot Tequila
  • Olive Oil
  • Chili Lime Seasoning
  • Water
  • Lime Juice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Orange Pepper
  • Red Onion
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Red Pepper

Instructions

  • Defrost your shrimp, I soak mine in cold water.
  • Once your shrimp are thawed and removed the shells from the shrimp.  Be sure to remove de-vine them if they are not already de-vein
  • Start with a container or a bag to allow the shrimp to marinate before cooking.
  • In a bowl or bag combine your Tequila, Olive oil, Chili Lime, Water, Lime Juice, salt, and pepper into the bowl or bag.
  • Allow your shrimps to soak in the Fajita marinade for at last a couple of hours to overnight.  Mine ended up sitting for about four hours.
  • Before you are ready to fire up the griddle cut up your peppers onions.
  • For Fajitas I recommend cutting the peppers into quarters and then sliced them into long slices.
  • Once you're ready to start cooking fire up your Blackstone griddle.
  • Now before you start to cook be sure that your griddle os well oiled.  This will protect your griddle and will also not let the food stick to it as well. Reoil your griddle, I always reoil just to make sure my griddle won't stick and cooks well.
  • When your griddle is ready to cook turn the heat down to low and start to drop your meat on to the griddle top.  turned the heat down on low and then dropped the meat on.
  • Stir your meat often using the spatulas that came in the Blackstone Griddle Accessories kit.
  • When your shrimp is about half cooked mix in your veggies into your meat. I made this at the same time as steak and chicken fajitas so I spread my veggies out.  Now since shrimp would cook faster then the other meat I threw the shrimp on griddle closer to the putting the veggies on.
  • Cook until your veggies are tender and your meat is cooked.
  • Remove and serve!
