Sheet pan dinners are such a favorite in our house that I’ve committed Thursdays to them on our weekly menu. By Thursday, I’ve usually lost most of my motivation in the kitchen, so I need something quick and easy
to get us through the week.

Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

  • 1 red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • chopped fresh cilantro, sour cream and shredded cheese, for topping 8 fajita tortillas

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, add the sliced peppers and onion, 2 Tbsp. olive oil and half of the seasoning mixture, about 3 tsp. Mix well; spread out onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine remaining spice mixture with the shrimp and 1 Tbsp. olive oil. After 10 minutes, add the shrimp to the baking pan; bake for another 10–12 minutes, until the shrimp and veggies are cooked through. Serve on tortillas with cilantro, sour cream and cheese.
