Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

How to Make Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

The onions and bell pepper are sliced very thin so that they cook at the same rate at the shrimp and everything is cooked on just one sheet pan. Finish this shrimp fajita recipe with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and chopped cilantro for a dinner that is packed with flavor and veggies!

In a large bowl, toss together sliced bell pepper, onions, olive oil, and seasonings. If you prefer, skip the bowl and mix everything on the sheet pan and toss to coat.

Roast fajita mixture in the oven at 450 degrees for about 8 minutes. Then switch the broiler on and let the shrimp and bell pepper pick up a little char for about 2 minutes.

Yum! Just try and resist sneaking bites of this delicious shrimp hot out of the oven!

Squeeze fresh lime juice over the hot shrimp and veggies and sprinkle with cilantro. While the shrimp are cooking, warm fajita-sized tortillas on the stove-top.

This is the best 20-minute dinner ever! So flavorful and unbelievably easy to make! I left the tails on the shrimp to make them look a little prettier in the pictures, but they can be removed prior to cooking if you prefer and definitely removed before eating:0)
