Fajitas for everyone!

Shrimp fajitas is a brilliant meal.

The shrimp and veggies cook together in the oven in no time flat.

It’s easy to serve shrimp fajitas family-style —

The pan goes straight from oven to table.

Alternatively, shrimp fajitas can be cooked in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Whatever you prefer.

Personally, I like the idea of cooking the fajitas on a sheet pan in the oven because that gives me time to square away the kitchen, set the table and pour myself a margarita.

We all have priorities!

I have a great cast iron griddle/grill that I used {affiliate link}.  I placed it in the oven as it was preheating.  When I placed the shrimp and veggies on it, I got that fantastic “sizzle” sound.  It was lovely.

Divide the fajitas among taco-size flour tortillas, spoon a little salsa over the top and there you go!

You won’t even miss the cheese – trust me.

We were able to make 12 decent sized shrimp fajitas tacos out of this recipe.

If you want to stretch it a little further, you can add a bit more bell pepper or onion.

Because Jeff isn’t big on bell peppers or onions, his tacos consisted of . . . shrimp!

Of course, the shrimp had the benefit of soaking up all the amazing flavor from the peppers and onions . . .

I stole a few of those tender shrimps from Jeff so I could enjoy along with the veggies.

But once the shrimp were gone, I filled the tortilla with the remaining vegetables and was super satisfied with the outcome.

It’s the seasoning!

So simple — just a little garlic, cumin, black pepper and lime juice.

The cooking time is going to vary depending on the size of the shrimp you use as well a how soft/charred you want your peppers and onions to be.

If you prefer your vegetables on the well-done side . . .

I recommend you let them cook a bit before adding the shrimp to the pan.

The shrimp should take between 10 and 15 minutes in a 400° oven so add them 10-15 minutes before your veggies are done to your preference.

Really easy.  Let me know how you like it!
