Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas


  • 2 lbs. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced thin
  • 1 orange bell, pepper sliced thin
  • 2 small red onions, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp of kosher salt
  • 2 tsp of chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp of smoked paprika
  • 8 tortillas, warmed
  • 1 lime


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 450°. Then, cut your onions and peppers into long, thin slices. In general, shrimp cooks fairly quickly. Because of this, you want the bell peppers and onions slices very thin so they can cook at the same speed as the shrimp.

Step 2

Afterwards, combine the onions, bell pepper, shrimp, olive oil, salt and pepper and spices in a large bowl. Toss to until everything is completely coated. Then, spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray, or use a silicone baking mat. Spread the shrimp, bell peppers and onions on baking sheet evenly.

Step 3

Cook at 450° for about 8 minutes or so. Then, turn the oven to broil and cook for additional 2 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked through and pink in color.

Step 4

Lastly, squeeze some fresh lime juice over the fajita mixture and top with your favorite ingredients, like fresh cilantro, guacamole, or sour cream. Serve in warm tortillas and enjoy!
