HOW DO YOU MAKE SHEET PAN SHRIMP FAJITAS?
- Start off by tossing the vegetables and shrimp with olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Or if you already have favorite brand of fajita seasoning, you can certainly use that instead.
- Spread everything into a nice and even layer onto a [amazon_textlink asin=’B00282JL7G’ text=’large rimmed sheet pan’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’lifmadswe09-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’3edb88fd-6ff7-11e8-959b-e7e69d7f63d8′].
- Bake in preheated oven until vegetables are tender and the shrimp is no longer translucent. If you like your vegetables a little bit more tender, you can add them in a few minutes before the shrimp. To keep your vegetables on the crunchy side – bake them for a few minutes less. You can also broil for the last 2 minutes to give the shrimp and vegetables a nice char.
- Serve with heated tortillas, an extra splash of lime juice and sprinkle with cilantro.
- For a low carb version, serve with these low carb tortillas , wrapped in lettuce or over cauliflower rice.
