If you're a fan of fresh, flavorful, delicious, and EASY, you're going to LOVE these Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas. Just place all the ingredients on a large baking sheet, bake for about 10 minutes, and voila! Dinner is ready. This is a go-to weeknight sheet pan dinner recipe in our house, and I love that it is loaded with vegetables, protein, and flavor.

Easy sheet pan dinner

I am a big fan of easy, no-fuss dinners, especially on weeknights. Thank goodness for sheet pan dinners, right??

In this sheet pan shrimp recipe, you simply load up your cleaned shrimp and sliced veggies onto a large baking pan, drizzle with a little olive oil, and toss with homemade fajita seasoning (or use store-bought, no one is judging!).

The shrimp cooks in just 10 minutes in the oven, and the vegetables come out perfectly crisp-tender. Just right for loading up onto your fajita (or use lettuce wraps for a low-carb, lower-calorie dinner), squeeze a little lime on, and enjoy!

Ingredients

For the shrimp fajitas:

  • 1 pound shrimp (medium-large, don't get tiny shrimp), peeled and deveined
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced thin (I like to use 1 yellow and 1 red pepper, just for the fun colors)
  • 1 small onion, sliced thin
  • 3 limes, halved or quartered (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • 5-6 flour tortillas, warmed right before serving (or use lettuce wraps or low-carb wraps, if desired)
  • 1-1.5 tablespoons fajita seasoning (use store-bought or make your own, see below)

Note: Fajita seasoning is typically not very spicy, but check the ingredients on the label and give it a taste if you are concerned about spice levels. If it is a little too spicy, then reduce the amount of seasoning and substitute with additional salt and sweet paprika for flavor. If you have taco seasoning on hand, you can use that instead of fajita seasoning.

For the fajita seasoning: 

  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika (or use smoked paprika for a smoky flavor, it's soo good!)
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, omit or reduce for no-spice or low spice, or substitute with sweet paprika for more flavor without the spice)

Step 4: Cook your shrimp fajitas for 9-10 minutes in the oven, or until the shrimp is pink and fully cooked. Remove from oven, and squeeze several lime wedges all over the pan.

Step 5: Warm your tortillas before serving, either by placing them on a small baking sheet or in foil and placing them in the hot oven for a minute or two, or by microwaving for ~15-30 seconds at a time with a piece of damp paper towel on top to keep them from getting hard. Serve the shrimp fajitas in the warm tortillas, garnishing with cilantro leaves and any other garnishes (see ideas below)
