Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These shrimp fajitas were seasoned to perfection and just the right amount for two people. I love the combination of seasoning... slightly sweet and savory with a little spice. A great recipe for a beginner cook looking to treat someone special to an amazing dinner. You'll look like a pro!


1/2 tsp
ground cumin
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 tsp
ground black pepper
1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp
chili powder
1/2 tsp
light brown sugar
2 Tbsp
olive oil
2 clove
garlic, smashed
3/4 lb
large shrimp, peeled
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 large
white onion
2 medium
poblano chiles
1/4 c
packed cilantro leaves
warmed flour tortillas


1Mix cumin, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, chili powder, and brown sugar.
2In medium bowl, add all but 1 tsp of the spice, the olive oil, the crushed garlic, and the peeled shrimp. Mix and let sit while preparing vegetables.
3Heat 1 tbsp olive oil (not from the shrimp) in a medium pan and cook onion until it starts to brown, then add the chilis. Saute for 3 additional minutes, then add remainder of dry spice mixture. Saute until tender.
4Transfer vegetables to a bowl and add shrimp to pan. Cook until shrimp are cooked, 3-4 minutes. Add vegetables back to pan and reheat.
5Serve in tortillas with cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and sour cream if desired.
