paleo shrimp fajita stir-fry

Recipe adapted from the Paleo Diet Cookbook

I love when I can just throw everything in the fridge in a pan and have dinner ready in 10 minutes. It basically guarantees that you'll be eating healthy that night, rather than reaching for crap that you shouldn't be eating any day of the year. In this case, I simply went to the store and grabbed some fresh shrimp and threw it in the pan with the ingredients I already had at home. Delicious!

2 lbs. shrimp or any meat you prefer
4 T extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 small yellow onion, sliced
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 medium tomato diced
2 T dark rum (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Place shrimp or other meat in bottom of a medium bowl. Combine 2 T olive oil and next 5 ingredients and stir into the shrimp and allow to marinate in the fridge for about 2 hours. Heat 2 T of oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the meat until almost done, then add onion and peppers and cook for 4 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine tomatoes and rum in small bowl, then pour into the skillet with the stir-fry and cook for one minute. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve. I served this delicious dish with my edamole dip.
