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.

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
