1. To make the sheet pan shrimp fajitas: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Lightly oil a rimmed sheet pan.

2. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, coriander, salt, and pepper, and set aside.

3. Arrange the bell peppers strips and onion onto the sheet pan. Top with shrimp, then sprinkle garlic and the seasoning mix evenly over shrimp and veggies.

4. Drizzle olive oil over top then toss everything to evenly coat. Spread on the baking sheet into an even layer.

5. Roast in the preheated oven, tossing once halfway through cooking until veggies are tender and shrimp have cooked through – about 8 – 10 minutes. You can crisp up the shrimp and vegetables by using the broiler for the last 2 minutes.

6. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil and warm in the hot oven during the last 5 minutes of cooking. A good idea is to add them on the side when you toss the shrimp and vegetables.

7. Drizzle lime or lemon juice evenly over the shrimp fajitas, sprinkle with fresh cilantro and red chili pepper flakes if you want. Serve the sheet pan shrimp fajitas on warm tortillas with your favorite toppings. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the Best Shrimp Fajitas Recipe

  • There’s no need to line the baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  • Keep an eye on the shrimp because they cook fast. That’s the point of this easy shrimp fajitas recipe!
  • Make sure to toss the shrimp fajitas halfway through the baking time to ensure all the ingredients cook evenly.
  • Use any fajitas topping you like, such as sour cream, avocado, shredded cheese, red onion, tomatoes, jalapeño, etc… 

What shrimp should we use to make the fajitas?

You definitely want to use the biggest shrimp you can find for your sheet pan fajitas. It’s up to you whether or not the tails are removed. I like to leave them on for a nicer presentation, but not everyone enjoys the extra step when eating the dish.

Can We Use Different Fajita Vegetables?

Yes, of course – Besides onion and bell peppers, you can throw anything you like in these shrimp fajitas: zucchini, eggplant, corn… If you want to include larger veggies, you might have to adjust the baking time.

How to Reheat Shrimp Fajitas

If you have leftover sheet pan shrimp fajitas – which we highly doubt – we recommend reheating the leftovers in a skillet on the stovetop. This will prevent the shrimp from becoming rubbery and the peppers from turning to mush, like in the microwave.

How long to keep the shrimp fajitas leftovers?

You can keep the shrimp fajitas leftovers for 2 or 3 days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Reheat the shrimp fajitas by following the instructions above.

    We have made this twice in the last month, as requested by my teens! I subbed 1 tsp of chipotle chili powder for one of the two tsp of chili powder and it spiced it up a bit. I also added zucchini to the veggies. It’s easy, quick, and delicious!
