Who doesn’t know about chicken fajitas? This a great, fast, easy recipe that you can put together on a busy weekday night and make all your friends and family happy, as well as well-fed. In my research of delicious, easy-to-make meals I stumbled upon fish fajita recipes, a type of fajitas I had no idea existed.

For me, fish is not the easiest ingredient to cook. I have had the experience of making it too bland no matter what recipe I used. With fish fajitas, most of the flavors do not depend on the fish, but on the seasoning. Thus, the end result will always be very tasty. The best thing? You can use all types of fish to make this delicious meal and it will be delicious every time.

The traditional recipe as a base for your ideas

No matter if you decide to make fish fajitas, chicken fajitas, or veggie fajitas, you will start with a base that puts all ingredients together and guarantees the final result. These are the ingredients to use in the traditional fajitas recipe:

  1. Main ingredient – meat, fish, shrimp, other veggies
  2. Bell peppers – red, yellow, green – sliced
  3. Onions – sliced
  4. Cilantro
  5. Lime juice
  6. Avocado
  7. Seasoning – you can buy pre-made or make yourself following simple recipes found online. Here is an example:
