Shrimp Sheet Pan Fajitas

Shrimp Sheet Pan Fajitas

I love ordering a big platter of sizzling fajitas when I go to a Mexican restaurant, but I don’t make them at home very often. Or I should say, I didn’t, until I discovered sheet pan fajitas. They are so easy to make and can be done with beef, chicken, or our family’s favorite–Shrimp Sheet Pan Fajitas!

One of the best things about cooking with shrimp (and most seafood, for that matter), is that’s it is so quick! Once you’ve got the prep work done, these fajitas are done in about 10 minutes! You can’t beat that on a busy week night.

I usually use frozen, thawed shrimp in this recipe, just because it’s convenient to keep on hand, but fresh shrimp works great too. And you can use any types of bell peppers you’d like. I just happen to prefer red, yellow and orange. Just remember, because the shrimp cooks so quickly, you’ll want to slice your peppers and onions a bit more thinly than you would for chicken or beef fajitas.

I’ve also shared my recipe for cilantro lime sour cream, because it pairs so well with the spicy shrimp in these fajitas. When I’m doing chicken or beef sheet pan fajitas, I usually stick with guacamole and sour cream, but this cilantro lime sauce is a must when I make shrimp fajitas. And of course, I still serve them with avocado or guacamole, and sour cream too!
