Cole & Mason Mexican Fajita Seasoning Blend
Eat our Mexican Fajita Seasoning Blend with a richer fish. Fajita seasoning isn't just for red meat or chicken. It can give a spicy new dimension to any fish with strong enough flavours to handle it. Rub it into a fillet of salmon, then oil and pan-fry it. Serve with a dressing of chilli, lime and coriander.
Why not try finding new interpretations of fajitas. Meat wrapped in soft tortillas isn't the only way to capture the taste of traditional fajitas. You can mix the seasoning with peppers and onions to spice up a bowl of quinoa, adding your favourite fajita staples after. Or to add a fajita flavour to your nachos, sprinkle the seasoning over tortilla chips, add grated cheese, then grill.
Fajita means 'little strap', which is a reference to thin skirts of steak. Skirt steak is an affordable cut of meat, which started gaining popularity when ranchers gave it to Mexican cowboys as part of their wages.
The Mexican ranch workers would flash cook the skirt steak on campfires. Then they'd cut the meat into the thinnest strips they could, to make it less chewy.
They wrapped the meat up in warm tortillas, and sat around the campfire with their families for the first fajita nights.
