Quick shrimp fajitas with my home made fajitas seasoning

Ingredients

Instructions: 

I just got these really really fresh shrimps from the local farmers market here in Versailles.

I always make my fajitas with my own home made fajitas seasoning. You can click here to view the fajitas seasoning recipe.

Peel the shell. Devein it with the help of a tip of a knife. I am leaving the tails on, you can remove it if you like to.

Wash thoroughly in cold water. Put in a bowl to marinate.

You can refer the recipe of my own seasoning in the link below.

1 tbsp + 1tbsp  of My Homemade fajitas seasoning

Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of my fajitas seasoning to the cleaned shrimps.

Mix well. Marinate and keep aside.

I am using half portion each from two large bell peppers. You can use any kind of bell peppers irrespective of the colors.

Wash and dry the peppers thoroughly. Cut the pepper in half and remove the stems and seeds.

Slice them into approximately 5 cm thick. Peel and clean the onion, cut in half lengthwise and slice them similar to the pepper.

Put a pan on high heat. I prefer a non-stick pan as I use minimum oil.

Put the shrimps in the pan.

Cook for 4-5 minutes. I take advantage of the high heat to char it. Be careful as this can spoil the party.

Move the shrimp from the pan and keep aside.

In the same pan, put remaining 1 tsp of oil. Continue with the same high heat.

Put all the vegetables and saute them for approximately 4 minutes.

Put the remaining 1 tbsp fajitas seasoning. Stir them well.

Put the cooked shrimps and mix them together for 1 minute.

Cut off the heat and add 1 tsp lime juice. Mix them well.

Ready to Serve Yayyyyyyyyyyy

Fresh clean pork

I am going to use the pressure cooker here to cook faster. Heat up the pressure cooker in high flames. Put the washed pork into the cooker along with cumin and some salt.

Cook for about 2 mins at high flames and make sure to keep stirring.

Now throw in ginger, garlic, onion and garlic slice into the cooker. Continue to cook for another 3 mins.

Add cumin powder, chili powder, and turmeric powder into the cooker. At this point, you should lower the flame and continue to cook.

After few minutes, you will see a lot of liquid oozing out of the meat.  Keep cooking till the liquid dries up, Here you have to make sure that you do not burn it, so you really need to keep an eye at this point.

If you are a garlic lover, you may want to put a whole bulb of unpeeled garlic inside the dish.  Make sure you do not cut the roots so as to avoid the garlic being scattered all over the dish.

Now you can add 2 1/2 cups of water into the cooker.

Cover up the lid of the pressure cooker and increase the heat to high flames.

Wait for the cooker to whistle 4-5 times.  You can now turn off the flames.

You will need to wait for all the pressure to escape from the cooker. Open up the cooker and you can see a thick layer of oil floating on top of the dish. This is because I use pork belly and it contains a lot of fats. Remove the oily layer with a serving spoon.

Put the cooker back on the heat at medium flames. This is the right time to adjust the salt.

Put thorny coriander and boil it for less than a minute at medium flames.

The mouthwatering Manipuri pork thongba is already. Time to jump in. I hope you will surely like this dish, Do let me know if you ever tried this, I am eager to hear back from you
