Capt. Dick May , Pine Island Eagle


1 Lb. medium shrimp peeled and deveined

1 C. chopped fresh cilantro

2 cloves garlic (minced)

1/3 C. lime juice

Four 9-inch flour tortillas

1 Tbsp. olive oil

2 Lg. bell peppers (1 red & 1 green) thinly sliced

1 Lg. onion thinly sliced

C. sour cream

How to:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Stir together the shrimp, cilantro, garlic and lime juice. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven until hot about 15 minutes.

4. Heat the oil in a wide, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the peppers and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are limp about 10 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the pan and keep warm.

5. Add the shrimp mixture to the pan, increase the heat to high, and cook, stirring often, until the shrimp are opaque in the center (cut to test) about 3 minutes. Return the vegetables to the pan, stirring to mix with the shrimp.

6. Spoon the shrimp mixture onto the warm tortillas, top with sour cream, and roll up.
