- Combine the marinade ingredients (cilantro, lime juice, chili powder, cayenne, garlic, jalapeño, and olive oil) in a medium stainless or glass mixing bowl and stir. Add the shrimp to marinade and refrigerate for an hour.
- Insert one plate on its grill side and another on its griddle side on the Cuisinart® Griddler®. Select Griddle and preheat to 425°F with the unit closed.
- In a mixing bowl toss sliced peppers and onion with the tablespoon of olive oil, ¼ teaspoon of chili powder, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and cayenne.
- When green indicator light illuminates, open the unit to extend flat and place vegetables on the grill side in a single layer, cooking them in two batches. Stir the vegetables occasionally during cooking and remove when tender and browned, about 8 minutes per batch; reserve. While second batch of vegetables is cooking, brush tortillas with oil, and begin to warm 1 to 2 minutes per side on the griddle. Reserve.
- Sprinkle shrimp with ¼ teaspoon of salt and grill for about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
- Serve all fajita ingredients with salsa, sour cream, and sliced avocado so each individual can prepare their own.
