Variations Ideas

  • Change Meat – This recipe can be made with steak fajitas, chicken or pork. Use what your family prefers.
  • Spices – I love using the fajita seasoning blend. But you can easily add in your own combination of chili powder, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Feel free to also add in cumin, oregano, or paprika.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – First, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Step 2 – Spray an 17 by 12-inch rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. You can also cover with foil if you prefer.

  • Step 4 – Spread bell peppers and yellow onion onto the baking sheet.

  • Step 5 – Drizzle olive oil over top. Season with salt and then toss everything to evenly coat. Spread into an even layer working to keep shrimp from overlapping.
  • Step 6 – Roast in preheated oven, tossing once halfway through cooking. Bake until veggies are tender and shrimp has cooked through, about 9-10 minutes.

Recipe Tips

  • Vegetables – We recommend slicing peppers and onions about the same size. This ensures that they cook evenly.
  • Shrimp – Shrimp does not take long to cook. Feel free to use already cooked shrimp.
  • Combining Ingredients – Completely coat the shrimp with the fajita seasoning for the best results.
