These sheet pan shrimp fajitas couldn’t be easier or more tasty – seasoned with our (EASY) homemade fajita seasoning, hit with a squeeze of fresh lime, and served over cauliflower rice, these make the ultimate low carb weeknight dinner!
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.
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.
- 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!
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.
- 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!
In the mood for turf instead of surf? Swap out the shrimp for some chicken tenderloins with these sheet pan chicken fajitas!
Keto Fajita Seasoning:
We love to make our own homemade seasoning blends. Like our keto taco seasoning, this fajita seasoning is super simple and fresh tasting, nearly as easy as ripping open a packet, and it contains zero sugar!
You’ll just need a mix of chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and salt.
You can keep these keto shrimp fajitas in the refrigerator for about 3 to 4 days if it is well covered. Re-heat in the oven or microwave until hot.
Cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and a squeeze of lime juice are the perfect toppings for fajitas.
