My tasty Shrimp Fajitas Seasoning is an essential pantry staple for beautifully seasoned, authentic Shrimp Fajitas. I like to make it in small batches to remain fresh, using pantry staples like chili and chipotle powders, cumin and other warm spices to pack that flavor punch thats low in salt.
Simply use this in your favorite Shrimp Fajitas recipe like my Grilled Shrimp Fajitas along with lime and orange juices for a fantastic marinade.
For this recipe I also use my own chili powder blend that you can easily make, or use your own or store bought version.

- Mexican oregano is a relative of Lemon Verbena and is native to Mexico. Similar in that it’s pungent like Mediterranean oregano, Mexican oregano has notes of mild licorice and citrus. Mediterranean oregano is a member of the mint family and most often is used in Greek and Italian recipes. Mediterranean oregano is the one most found in spice racks and supermarkets.
