🥣 Recommended Tools
🔪 How to Make Healthy Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas
Add the shrimp, peppers and onion to a large mixing bowl.
Tip: You can also use yellow bell peppers or any combination you like.
Drizzle the olive oil on top and toss.
Sprinkle the fajita seasoning evenly over the top and toss again to combine, making sure everything is well coated in the seasoning and olive oil. Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Tip: If you aren't able to make the Homemade Fajita Seasoning, you can use store bought instead. Just make sure to check those labels.
To bake the one pan shrimp fajitas, preheat oven to 450°F.
Pour everything onto a sheet pan that’s been brushed with olive oil.
Bake on the upper ⅔ rack of your oven for 8 minutes. Then turn the oven to broil and cook another 2 minutes or until the shrimp and veggies are cooked through and slightly charred.
Serve the baked shrimp fajitas with (optional) cilantro and lime wedges over the tops and Keto Tortillas on the side.
Tip: Alternatively, you can serve this mixture over a salad and drizzle it with my Homemade Chipotle Ranch Dressing.
How Do I Store Shrimp Fajitas?
- Fridge: Leftover shrimp fajitas will stay fresh in the fridge, in an airtight container, for up to about 3 days.
- Freezing: It’s not recommended that you freeze leftover baked shrimp. They can become rubbery once they are frozen and thawed.
- Reheating: To reheat these fajitas just stick them in the microwave for a few minutes. You can also reheat them in the oven or air fryer just until they’re warmed through.
What Toppings Do You Put on a Fajita?
There are so many tasty toppings that will take your fajitas to the next level of deliciousness. Here are some top suggestions you should consider:
- Lime wedges (squeeze some of juice of the tops)
- Sliced avocado or fresh Guacamole
- Chopped fresh cilantro
- Diced tomatoes or salsa
- Sliced fresh or pickled jalapenos
- Shredded lettuce
- Various cheeses-3 Cheese Mexican blend, pepper jack, cheddar, crumbled cotija
- Homemade Pico de Gallo
- A drizzle of Avocado Cilantro Lime Dressing
Can You Eat Shrimp on Keto?
You sure can! Shrimp are an excellent low carb source of protein. In fact, there are only about 1 net carb per ounce of shrimp.
How Many Carbs are in Shrimp Fajitas without Tortillas?
Most of the carbs in fajitas come from the carbs naturally found in the peppers and onions. But with only 4 net carbs per serving, fajitas make an excellent low carb meal option.
Are Shrimp Fajitas Low Calorie?
Shrimp fajitas are very low in calories. For one serving there is just a little over 200 calories, that includes the peppers and onion, but not any of the optional toppings.
What Can You Put in Fajitas Instead of Peppers?
If you're not a fan of bell peppers, you can add mushrooms, or even strips of zucchini instead.
How Do I Bring My Fajitas to the Next Level?
It's all about the seasonings. Shrimp and veggies are like a blank canvas, ready to soak up whatever herbs and spices you decide to use.
The other key to taking ordinary fajitas to next level fajitas is to load them up with tasty toppings that add flavor and texture. Creamy avocado, crunchy lettuce, tangy salsa, etc., all play a big part in creating the ultimate fajitas.
