Weeknights tend to get a little hectic around my house and I’d be the same is true at your house.

Getting dinner on the table quickly is a must, and keeping it low carb, full of veggies, and healthy for my family is important to me. That’s where sheet pan meals come in to play.

Much like our Greek sheet pan chicken and veggies and our sheet pan sausage and veggies, we make these sheet pan shrimp fajitas on the regular.

I love that I can serve them with some cilantro lime cauliflower rice for me and the husband (hello, shrimp fajita burrito bowl) and a pile of tortillas for the kids.

We love these so much that we’re also sharing an air fryer version! Check out our air fryer shrimp fajitas over on our sister site, AirFried.com.

Why We Love This Recipe:
  • Everything cooks together on one pan for easy clean up.
  • The seasoning blend is so flavorful, but super simple to whip up.
  • Easy to feed both the low carbers and the carb lovers with this one! Just have tortillas and cauliflower rice on hand.
  • Perfect for meal prep – this one reheats great!

Ingredient Notes:

ingredients for sheet pan shrimp fajitas recipe.

Shrimp – I’m using frozen raw shrimp that has been thawed to prepare these shrimp fajitas. You’ll want them to be peeled, deveined, and with the tails off. (If you have any leftover shrimp after making these fajitas, check out this incredibly easy air fryer frozen shrimp recipe!)

Veggies – You can’t make classic fajitas without bell pepper and onion! Choose your favorite variety and color of onion and bell pepper and slice those up to roast with the shrimp, then you’ll finish them off under the broiler until they’re perfectly charred!

Seasoning – You could use a packet of fajita seasoning, but our homemade version is better! You’ll need chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.

How To Make Shrimp Fajitas:

  • Prepare – Slice the veggies and pop them on a sheet pan with the shrimp. Drizzle liberally with avocado oil.
  • Season – Sprinkle the seasoning over shrimp and veggies and give it a quick stir. seasoned shrimp and peppers.
  • Roast –  Bake for about 8 minutes and then broil for a couple of minutes to char those veggies and really amp up the flavor.
  • Serve – We like to serve these sheet pan shrimp fajitas in a bowl over some of my favorite cilantro lime cauliflower rice! You could also use low carb tortillas for these fajitas. Some keto guacamole is another great side to go with this recipe!

  1. You state this is a shrimp fajita recipe, but in the instructions it says chicken. Which is it and does the time to cook it change

  2. You have chicken listed in the instructions. Are the numbers for nutritional information on shrimp or chicken?

      Sorry about that! I was clearly on a chicken kick when I was writing that out. All fixed now.
