Need dinner in under 30 minutes?! You’ve come to the right place! Shrimp Fajitas are the perfect quick and healthy one pan meal for busy weeknights.

Considering that I shared my recipe for Strawberry Beer Margaritas the other day, this fajitas concoction was the best way to follow up because Fajitas + Margaritas make my life go round and round.  😀

That’s NOT to say that my Steak Fajitas don’t also go with my Margaritas. They do and they are BOMB. I promise.

Additionally, me thinks that these Shrimp Fajitas will be your new favorite weeknight dinner.

HOW DO YOU MAKE SHRIMP FAJITAS?

We are going to start this meal by preparing our Homemade Fajitas Seasoning Mix

  • You will need to combine chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, dried oregano, sea salt, and fresh ground pepper. Click on the link above OR in the recipe box below for the entire ingredients and directions. 
  • Next, we are going to oil a skillet, chop up some bell peppers and onions, season them with the prepared seasoning, and them to our hot skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove from skillet and cover to keep warm.
  • Add a bit more olive oil to the skillet, toss shrimp with the seasoning mix, and give them a couple minutes of cooking time, or until they turn pink.

And that’s it! This should take you about 25 minutes, prep time included.

You can serve Shrimp Fajitas on whole wheat flour tortillas, also in a salad, or over rice and beans. Orrrr! Do what I do and eat ’em straight from the skillet, standing above the stove. They taste better that way. 😀
