Let's face it, no one really wants to do the cleaning up after dinner. That's why having a sheet-pan dinner (or several) in your repertoire is an absolute must. And there is no better sheet-pan recipe to keep on hand than this one for shrimp fajitas. The baking sheet will get a head start in the oven so when the shrimp and veggies hit the pan, the shrimp will get a subtle sear. After a quick bake and some time under the broiler, the result is a crowd-pleasing, Mexican-inspired meal. Wrap the shrimp and veggies in warm tortillas, and serve with all the fixings.


  • 8 small flour tortillas

  • 1 ¼ pounds peeled and deveined medium raw shrimp

  • 2 large bell peppers, sliced (about 3 cups)

  • 1 red onion, sliced (about 2 cups)

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons fajita or taco seasoning

  • 2 limes

  • ½ cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems (from 1 bunch)

  • ¾ cup refrigerated pico de gallo

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 2 avocadoes, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F with racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Place a rimmed baking sheet in oven. Wrap tortillas together in aluminum foil.

  2. Toss together shrimp, peppers, onion, oil, and fajita seasoning in a large bowl. Carefully remove hot baking sheet from oven; spread shrimp mixture in a single layer. Place on top rack of oven for 6 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven and stir shrimp mixture. Increase oven temperature to broil. Place wrapped tortillas on bottom rack.

  3. Return baking sheet to top rack and broil until shrimp and vegetables are slightly charred and shrimp are cooked through, about 4 minutes. Squeeze 1 lime over shrimp mixture; stir. Sprinkle with cilantro.

  4. Cut remaining lime into wedges. Serve shrimp and vegetables with warmed tortillas, pico de gallo, sour cream, sliced avocados, and lime wedges.
