I usually make shrimp with pasta or we grill it with vegetables, but I was trying to think of a different way to make it since shrimp seems to be a big crowd pleaser in my house. I came across this recipe on Pinterest and had to make a few adjustment to it, but we ended up all loving it. It’s also super easy to make with little cleanup. You just need a bowl to toss all the ingredients in and then a cookie sheet to it bake on. Easy peasy!


1 1/4 lbs. small shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 red bell pepper, sliced thin

1 orange or yellow pepper, sliced thin

1/2 of a red onion, sliced thin

1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. paprika

freshly squeezed lime

12 mini flour tortillas, warmed in the microwave

garnishes: salsa, cilantro, sour cream

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine shrimp, vegetables, and spices.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Spread shrimp and vegetable mixture onto the baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, then turn over and broil for another 2 minutes or until shrimp is cooked through. Squeeze the lime juice over the fajita mixture. Serve with warmed tortillas and your choice of garnishes.
