Going Coastal: Blackened Shrimp Fajitas

Going Coastal is a series of recipes familiar throughout the country but with a uniquely Third Coast spin to them.

Everyone loves fajitas. Everyone loves blackened shrimp. Well why not just slam 'em together? I did.

Blackened Shrimp Fajitas
1 pound shrimp, shelled
1/2 cup sliced onions
1/2 cup sliced red & green bell peppers
1/2 cup rough chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup blackening seasoning
1/4 cup clarified butter
1/2 cup salsa Verde
1/4 cup crème fraiche
8 oz. shredded white cheddar cheese
6 flour tortillas

Pour Mexi-Creole blackening seasoning, shrimp onions, peppers and mushrooms into a zip lock bag and shake to completely coat the shrimp. Heat a large skillet to high heat and add half the butter and half the shrimp and cook until done on each side. Set aside to drain and repeat with remaining shrimp and butter. Heat the tortillas by placing them in a large plastic bag and then into a microwave oven for 10 to 15 seconds. Serve shrimp and tortillas with remaining ingredients as toppings. May also be served with Cajun rice on the side or as another topping.
