            Steps to make / How to make Skillet Shrimp Fajitas:

            In a mixing bowl add Shrimp,veggies,lime juice and all the seasonings mentioned.

            Toss well as to coat everything well with the spices.

            On a skillet,spray some olive oil and spread the shrimp and vegetables mix in a single layer.

            Cook till the veggies are slightly charred and shrimp is darkened/blackened.

            Do not overcook the shrimp or you can first cook the veggies in a single layer and then add shrimp after veggies are almost cooked.That way shrimp will not turn hard.

            Serve in a flour tortilla or corn tortilla with sour cream +cream cheese topping,lime juice and chopped cilantro.

            For the topping,I have used sour cream +cream cheese+salt+sugar+lime juice+cilantro
