As the seasons change, one thing remains the same – our love for sheet pan suppers. Whether you are making a simple chicken dinner for two or whipping up a watch party appetizer for the big game, there’s always an excuse to make a one-pan meal.
These shrimp sheet pan fajitas are a quick and easy summer recipe that you can put on the table in about 20 minutes. Cha-ching.
In a large bowl, stir together garlic, olive oil, lime juice, ancho chili pepper, cumin, salt, and cayenne pepper. Add your peeled, deveined shrimp and toss until they are fully coated, then set them aside.
Heat the toaster oven (or oven) to 350 degrees and spray the baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. We made these shrimp fajitas in the Hamilton Beach® Easy Reach Oven, because let’s face it, sometimes it’s just too hot to stand by the grill or heat up the entire house with the oven this time of year.
Add multi-colored bell peppers (the brighter the meal the better in the summer) and red onion to the baking pan and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the pan and add the marinaded shrimp on top of the vegetables and finish baking for another 5 minutes until the shrimp are cooked.
Serve these no-fail fajitas with your favorite tortillas and toppings. We sliced ripe avocado (a summer staple in my kitchen), dolloped sour cream, and sprinkled chopped cilantro to finish the dish. Whether you want an easy meal to put on the table after a long day spent in the sun or plan to expand your Taco Tuesday recipe repertoire, welcome sheet pan fajitas into your summertime rotation.
