Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

A seafood fajita fiesta - ready in 20 minutes or less!

Shrimp is one of easiest and most affordable seafood options, plus it is packed with protein, iron and the antioxidant (and essential mineral) selenium. This one pan meal also cooks up in minutes and leftovers make an awesome lunch the next day. Serve with warmed corn or flour tortillas or cooked rice. If want to add a sauce to serve on top – try Buttermilk Jalapeno Ranch or this crowd-pleasing Green Sauce.

Look for a large sheet pan – this allows for plenty of room for the veggies + shrimp to cook and caramelize. If you like a little char on your fajitas, place until the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes before removing from the oven. Want more easy recipes like this?
