20 Minute Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

Hey Y’all,

We’ve been posting all about beauty lately, but as I promised in our bio, we are very sporadic. I hope to eventually coordinate days with specific categories, but until that happens our blog will continue to be all over the place. 🙂

So now to the fun part. I LOVE cooking, I find so much joy in putting together a nice meal for me and Tomas. However, yesterday we were both exhausted from the gym and were dreading having to cook. We are so over eating chicken all the time. I was scrolling through Pinterest to find something quick to make and I found the perfect recipe. I made some pretty big changes to make the original recipe, but it was SO good!! We had no leftovers.

Ingredients:

1 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
1 small yellow onion, sliced thin
1 1/2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 packet of taco seasoning
Lime to taste
Fresh Cilantro for garnish
Tortillas, warmed

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit or 230 degrees Celcius.
2. In a large bowl, combine onion, bell pepper, shrimp, olive oil, and taco seasoning packet.
3. Toss to combine.
4. Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
5. Spread the contents of the bowl onto the baking sheet.
6. Cook at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 minutes. Then, turn oven to broil and cook for additional 2 minutes or until shrimp is cooked through.
7. Squeeze juice from fresh lime over fajita mixture and top with fresh cilantro.
8. Serve in warm tortillas.

Disclaimer:
Because I’m too lazy to wash an extra dish, we just mixed it right on the baking sheet. Not the easiest method but, it worked. Also, I asked my husband to cut the onions, so in the picture, they are chopped rather than being cut thin. This method worked fine also.

This is what it should look like precooked:

And this is what it should look like straight out of the oven… you can still see the steam haha:

I really enjoyed this recipe, it was extremely quick and easy, and for the most part, I’d say it was very healthy! Let me know if you guys try this recipe and how it turned out for you!
