Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

The easiest way to prepare fajitas – in a sheetpan! These easy fajitas are made with spices, spiralized bell peppers and onion, jalapeños, and shrimp all in a sheetpan in the oven.

Cooking on sheetpans is my favorite way to quickly prepare meals. The cleanup is easy (especially if you line your sheetpan with parchment paper, foil, or a silicone mat) and the process is simple.

Fajitas is one of my favorite easy and quick weeknight meals to make, but standing over the stovetop and cooking the vegetables takes time! By popping everything in the oven, you’re freed up to do other things – whether that’s prepare other parts of dinner (like perhaps a fresh pico de gallo to go with these fajitas or warming up some tortillas) or just chill.

These fajitas are seasoned with some of my go-to fajita spices, cilantro, and jalapeno for a spicy kick. The bell peppers and onions are cooked alongside the shrimp and then the shrimp is set aside while the veggies get an extra broiling so they crisp up and cook further. You can skip this step if you’re pressed for time, or don’t want to dirty another vessel in the cooking process!

Fajitas are traditionally served with warmed up tortillas, avocado, and other fixings, but I went with brown rice (I’m really into brown rice bowls lately), avocado, and lots of lime.

These fajitas would work well with chicken or tofu, also.

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
