SHRIMP FAJITA BOWLS WITH CILANTRO LIME CREMA


I don’t even know what crema really is but it sounds fancy and I feel cool saying it. It’s just Greek yogurt btw.

Anyway, Shrimp fajitas just scream summer to me. I love turning everything into a bowl and find them to be way more satiating then tacos. This recipe looks complicated but comes together pretty quickly, I promise!


This will be posted to my website soon (link in bio). And if you’re new here, hi! I try to post recipes every Sunday. Mom shit during the week. 🤪
