Tuna Fajitas

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 6 servings
These fish fajitas use a deliciously marinated tuna instead of the traditional steak or chicken fajita!

If you are a fajita lover, I’m sure you will make this your favorite new dish for Lent season. This Tex-Mex dish is usually eaten with chicken or skirt steak and for this recipe, I made it with a delicious tuna steak instead! The result is simply delicious!

Ingredients

  • For the tuna
  • 1 tuna steak (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground

Chef Notes

You can always add some chopped jalapeños on top to get the full Tex-Mex combo. This recipe can also be made with shrimp or salmon. For a healthier version substitute corn for flour tortillas.
