About this Recipe

Brava Shrimp Fajitas come together faster than the time it takes to order takeout. Really! Shrimp, onions, and peppers cook in just nine minutes in the Brava in this foolproof recipe. Chef Annie loves the combination of red onion, poblano pepper, and bell pepper. Toss ingredients with the Brava Mexican Spice Rub before cooking for a flavorful shortcut. If you don’t have the spice rub on hand, no problem - we’ve noted the amounts needed below. Once cooked, enjoy fajitas in warmed tortillas, with rice, or over quinoa or salad to keep it gluten-free. Serve with fresh lime, cilantro, and a few more pinches of the Mexican Spice Rub for an added punch of flavor.


  • ½ lb peeled and deveined shrimp (12–14 medium/large shrimp)
  • 2 ½ cups sliced onions and bell peppers (¼-inch-thick slices)
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Brava Mexican Spice Rub
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 4-6 6” flour tortillas
  • Optional: guacamole
  • Brava Mexican Spice Rub Ingredients:
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
