  1. In a resealable small jar, combine all the ingredients for the seasonings. Seal and shake well. Reserve 1 1/2 teaspoons for the vegetables.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lime juice and 4-5 teaspoons of the fajita seasonings. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Allow to marinate (no longer than 20 minutes) while you prepare the vegetables.
  3. Slice the the onions and bell peppers.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and allow to cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the bell peppers and sprinkle with the reserved 1 1/2 teaspoons of fajita seasonings. If you like the peppers with a nice crunch - cook for about 3-5 minutes. And if you like them softer, leave them on for about 3 minutes longer. Transfer and set aside on a plate.
  5. Melt ghee on the same skillet and add the shrimp. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until shrimp is opaque and no longer pink.
  6. Add the vegetables back to the skillet until just heated through. Adjust seasonings as needed. Remove from heat.
  7. Serve hot with heated tortillas, avocado slices and lime wedges plus any other toppings of your choice.
  8. For low carb / keto serve over some lettuce or cauliflower rice.
