Shrimp Fajitas

Why yes, I'm still here.  Give this one a try for a nice tasty meal.

Shrimp Fajitas
Marinade Ingredients
3/4 cup seafood stock
1/2 tsp ancho chile powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 lb frozen shrimp, thawed
juice from one lime

1 green pepper, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 tsp ancho
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1 package burrito tortillas

1.  Put shrimp and marinade ingredients in the fridge for 15 minutes in a covered container (if you leave it in there too long, the lime juice can "cook" the shrimp and turn your fajitas into ceviche).  Remove the shrimp from the fridge and drain, saving the marinade.
2.  Put 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat.  Add onion, pepper and spices into pan and cook for 3 minutes.
3.  Carefully add 1/2 cup seafood stock from the marinade to pan (you may want to remove pan from heat while you do this), and then turn heat up to medium-high.  Cook for 6 minutes.
4.   Add the shrimp to the pan and cook for another 3-5 minutes, until cooked (do not overcook).
5.  Serve out into tortillas and enjoy!
