Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas Recipe

The onions and bell pepper are sliced very thin so that they cook at the same rate at the shrimp and everything is cooked on just one sheet pan. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and chopped cilantro for a dinner that is packed with flavor and veggies!

This is the best 20 minute dinner ever! So flavorful and unbelievably easy to make! I left the tails on the shrimp to make them look a little prettier in the pictures, but they can be removed prior to cooking if you prefer and definitely removed before eating:0)

  1. This was delicious! I prepped everything in the morning, so all I had to do was put it on the sheet pan and put it in the oven. I used the same spices, just a little more of each. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Should we add time if the shrimp are frozen??

  3. I have been on a shrimp kick lately. This recipe looks delicious and quick! This works for me. I like using my broiler. It really gives the food that extra something. Lots of oohs and ahhs when it comes out of the broiler.

  4. Stephanie says:

    Melissa, the shrimp fajitas look great… definitely going to try them!! Do you use raw shrimp for the recipe?

  5. This recipe was so easy and created the most delicious meal. My husband loved it. It’s perfect for a weeknight! Thank you!!

  6. Thank you for sharing such an amazingly delicious recipe! It was very easy and quick to make. This one is such a keeper 🙂

  7. Is the shrimp raw or the pre cooked?

  8. Justina Merz says:

    making tonight! skipping the tortillas and using lettuce cups and a little salsa on top

  9. This looks awesome!! Have you tried with chicken or steak? I wonder if changing up the meat would change the cook time?

  10. Made exactly as recipe stated. ( minus measuring exact amount of spices and oil) this is so easy and delicious! Would never have thought about making them this way. Thanks for sharing!

  11. This is so easy and SO delicious. My daughter is coming home from college for the weekend and requested this meal. Happy (and excited) to oblige!

  12. thanks for this recipe. It was delicious and easy to make. I made it for my son’s birthday! Came out wonderful except for the fact that I peeled and DeVaned The shrimp myself. I must’ve missed a few shells. Next time I’ll spend the extra money and buy it already peeled And deveined.

  13. Such a wonderfully delicious meal, will be making this over and over again! So easy to make too.

  14. These were SO. GOOD. After working all day and coming home to an insane toddler, these were easy to prep and get to the table. I served them with cheese, rice, lime cilantro crema, and store bought guacamole. YUM!!! Adding these to our dinner rotation …

  15. Could you use cooked shrimp for this? I’ve got a big bag of it in the freezer and trying to find something to make haha.

  16. This was really good. Thank you

  17. Take the tails off the shrimp! Nothing like biting into a fajita to hear and feel the crunch of a shrimp tail in your mouth. 😀

    But this looks great. I want some. It’s going to be on my list this month. 🙂

  18. Easy and delicious! Great recipe!

  19. Heather S says:

    I’ve made these (as stated) many times – this is a dinner that hits our table frequently. I serve with avocado slices; sour cream; and black beans cooked with a little cumin and garlic. Delish!

  20. This was one of the best Pinterest recipes I’ve ever cooked. We will cook it longer next time. Probably 8 minutes and 5 minutes. Seasoning was perfect!! I did marinade the items for about an hour. Delish and simple!!
