Can I just use green bell peppers?
Yes absolutely! We often use whatever peppers are growing in the garden. For the most beautiful fajitas I recommend green, yellow and red peppers to get that rainbow color! But if you only have green bell peppers, just use them instead. Either way, it’s going to be delicious!
Can you use taco seasoning for fajitas?
Yes, if you don’t have all the spices on hand, you can just 1 packet of taco seasoning from the grocery store instead. This makes the recipe even quicker!
How to Make The Best Shrimp Fajitas
Are you ready to make the best shrimp fajitas in only 20 minutes? Let’s do this!
Add shrimp, bell peppers and onion to a prepared baking sheet.
Add olive oil and spices, mixing to fully coat the shrimp and vegetables.
Bake in the oven until shrimp is fully cooked – it should be bright pink. After baking, turn the broiler on and broil for about 2 minutes, watching it carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Remove from the oven and squeeze lime on top of everything. Serve on warm tortillas and add your favorite toppings!
Topping ideas: extra lime, guacamole, fresh salsa, sour cream, shredded cheese, jalapeño slices and cilantro (tip: here’s how to store cilantro to make it last).
Store leftovers in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute, or until fully warmed up.
