We love Fajita nights! Chicken Fajitas are a staple in my home, it’s Tommy’s favorite dish to cook (the first dish he ever made me!). These shrimp fajita are a fun twist on the classic dish made all on one sheet pan. You can also serve them over cauliflower rice to keep it low-carb and keto-friendly.

  1. This recipe is delicious! The flavor is amazing. I made cilantro lime rice for the base and mixed everything together. My husband even said it was super flavorful and everything worked so well together.

    Omg!!! Gina, you have outdone yourself with this one and you are simply genius. It was incredibly delish! I had my serving, but definitely wanted more even though I was full. I added cilantro and lime to the salsa which gave it a little extra pop. Other than that, the recipe was followed to a tee. I will definitely be making this again.

  3. This has become a regular in our home. So easy, so delicious. When I’m feeling a little lazy, I will skip the salsa and topping and just serve it with store-bought guacamole.
