  • 8 corn tortillas
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 pouch Simply Organic® Fajita Simmer Sauce
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • For serving: sour cream, jalapeño slices (optional), chopped cilantro, lime wedges


  1. In a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, add oil to about ½-inch deep, and place a cooling rack over a baking sheet.
  2. Once oil is heated, fry tortillas one at a time, cooking for about 30 seconds on each side, or until golden brown. Transfer to cooling rack to let excess oil drip off. Repeat with all tortillas. (Note: they will crisp up as they cool.)
  3. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add avocado oil. Once heated, add shrimp, sear for 1 to 2 minutes, flipping to sear both sides, then add Simmer Sauce and stir to coat. Continue cooking for another 2 to 3 minutes, then remove from heat.
  4. In a small bowl, mash avocado with a fork, then stir in lime juice and season with salt.
  5. To serve, spread mashed avocado on each tortilla, then top with cabbage, shrimp and desired toppings.
