Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas are the perfect combination of shrimp, veggies and spice. Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.

Cinco de Mayo is just a few days away and I have to admit it’s one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. I love it for two reasons: 1. The food and 2. Most importantly, it’s the day my husband and I got engaged. Fun fact: After he asked me to marry him we then went and had dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. Not exactly Mexican food, but it was a fun night nonetheless.

These Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas couldn’t be easier to make and I love that I can toss it all onto a sheet pan and it’s done in just a few minutes.

I buy frozen raw shrimp that’s already been deveined and peeled. Thaw before using. Use either small or medium sized shrimp.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 1½ cups shrimp, deveined and peeled.*
  • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Rinse and dry the shrimp. If they have a tail you can either leave them on or pull them off. I pull them off.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the shrimp, onion, peppers, salt, pepper and spices.
  4. Spread the shrimp mixture onto the baking sheet.
  5. Place in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes. The shrimp will be pink when they are cooked through.
  6. Squeeze lime juice all over the shrimp and vegetables right before serving.
  7. Serve with warm tortillas and your choice of toppings.
