I don’t think I have ever met a fajitas I didn’t like. Whether it be beef, chicken, or shrimp like in these sheet pan shrimp fajitas – I’m there!
This tasty shrimp version is all made with one pan and in the oven. This makes clean up a breeze.
I love that it is made with a simple homemade mixture of seasonings from your own pantry. You can have these babies ready to go in around 20 minutes., another bonus for using shrimp. It cooks so quickly.
I kept the toppings simple by just using a wedge of lime and a little sour cream. However, please feel free to add cheese, guac, or anything else you’d like on your fajitas!
