Seafood fajitas

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 \N Flour tortillas
1 large Sweet onion; (Vidalia or Walla Walla or Texas Sweet), slice into 1\" rounds
2 \N Red bell peppers
2 teaspoons Olive oil
2 \N Green onions; chopped
1 cup Diced tomato; (about 2 small tomatoes)
2 \N Cloves garlic; crushed through a press
1 teaspoon Chili powder; or to taste
½ teaspoon Ground cumin
\N \N Juice of 1/2 lime
1 cup Spicy tomato juice or plain tomato juice
1 pounds Shelled shrimp
½ pounds Fish; such as sea bass, orange roughy, or tuna, diced
1 cup Chopped fresh cilantro

Heat a barbecue grill to medium. Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and warm on the grill away from direct heat. Grill the onion slices over heat until browned and soft, about 15 minutes, turning once or twice. Separate the onions into rings. Poke a hole in each red pepper and grill until the skin is charred. Place in a plastic dish with an airtight lid and allow to steam 15 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Peel the peppers and discard the skin, seeds and stems. Slice the flesh into strips and mix with the onions. While the vegetables are grilling, prepare the fish filling. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the green onions, tomato and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes are soft, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, lime juice and tomato juice and bring to a simmer simmer. Reduce heat to low and stir in the shrimp and fish. Cook until the shrimp turn pink and the fish is opaque, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the cilantro. Serve the fish filling, warm tortillas and peppers and onion mixture separately so each diner can prepare her own fajita.
