Fajita Shrimps Boats
These sammies are really good but I swung and missed a couple times making them. Confessions… If using fajita meat it is important to fillet all the membrane off the meat. A lot of cuts of beef will work with this but not trimming the meat (especially the membrane) will create a pull when you bite into the sammie therefor also pulling other parts out and on your shirt. Not horrible but keep an eye on cooking shrimp, those are overcooked. Consider a simple avocado mash instead of what’s below, but that’s just a personal want. I gave this an IMO 3 only because of my skills that night otherwise it would've been a IMO 4+.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American, Mexican
- 1 pound fajitas
- 1 tbsp Dawgs Bark
- 1 tbsp Cottonmouth
- 10 count peel deveined shrimp (add more if ya want)
- 1 tbsp Cottonmouth
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- French bread or a nice fresh roll
- ¼ sliced onion
- ¼ sliced bell pepper Multi colored or not. Mine were on sale.
- 1 avocado mashed smooth.
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 clove garlic smashed as smooth as possible with dash of salt.
- ¼ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
- Salt Dashes
Cook to Plate
- Remove membrane from fajitas.
- Sprinkle membrane side of fajitas with Cottonmouth.
- Sprinkle meat side of fajitas with Dawgs Bark.
- Optional but I let meat rest for 45 minutes to room temp.
- Cover shrimp with olive oil and sprinkle with Cottonmouth.
- Start your grill (charcoal, gas, or cast iron) and get it to medium heat.
- On stove start up a small pan to medium high.
- Pour in a shot of olive oil and drop in onions/bell peppers. Cook til limp.
- With a knife cut out to of your bread to make a boat. Like Subway used to do.
- In a bowl mix the avocado, sour cream, garlic, and dash of salt. You can add hot sauce and/or a seasoning to make this sauce even better. Me? Should of did just avocado, garlic, and salt..
- These fajitas were thin (¼” max). I should have did higher heat and shorter cook time but that would have meant rebuilding my fire. Wasn’t gonna happen…
- Throw on the fajitas and cook 3 minutes per side. If your fajitas are longer than grilling surface just cut in half.
- Now grill your shrimp about 1 min 1st side 30 sec 2nd side. I used a hibachi for this party and the grill surface is less porous. They make shrimp holder for traditional grills or you could use skewers.
- Turn on your oven's broiler.
- Stuff your bread boats with sliced against the grain fajitas and shrimp.
- On top of that add some limp peppers and sprinkle some shredded cheese.
- Mount on cookie sheet and place in oven for about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- When broiled pull and plate your boats. Dab some avocado sauce across top and tear it up chef!

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust ingredients to your taste. None of these recipes came from a written measured recipe and are made on the fly. If you don't have any Texas Butter I guess we'll overlook it if you use what's in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much and translated voice to text. Will hashtag recipes that match a search here and the same hashtag in the Instagram's image comments. Hashtags will look something like #txbut001. Thanks - Shawn
