Low Carb Tortillas
Wash shrimp thoroughly with ice cold water. Remove shell, head and devein. Keep tails intact. Pat dry with paper towel. Set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime or green lemon juice, garlic powder, chili powder, Spanish paprika, cumin, salt and black pepper
Divide marinade for bell pepper slices and shrimp. Drizzle half of the mixture over shrimp. Marinate shrimp for at least 15 minutes.
In a sheet pan, spread bell pepper slices, jalapeño, celery and half of red onions then drizzle marinade. Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F for 5 minutes.
In the same sheet pan, add shrimp and toss in the remaining red onions. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes. Keep watch as you don’t want to overcook the shrimp.
To save time and energy, place tortilla over a wire rack and place in the broiler area in the same oven with the shrimp.
Serve immediately with low carb tortilla, avocados on the side and drizzled with sour cream.
