 These only take EIGHT MINUTES to bake!  The extra time is preheating your oven, cutting up your veggies, wrapping your tortillas in tin foil and/or cooking your rice side.  It really doesn’t even take the whole 30 minutes (especially if you do your rice in an instant pot).

The difference between these two amazing dishes is the addition of the bell peppers, onions and tortillas along with your shrimp for the fajitas version.  To make them as a yummy fuss free bowl, we love it without the veggies and serve it with cilantro lime or plain rice.  Great for make ahead meal prep for lunches for the next few days!  You could always add the peppers and onions for the bowls, of course.  It’s SO GOOD either way!   You really can’t go wrong, but it’s nice to have variety.   The hardest part is not eating ALL OF IT straight from the pan before you even set it out.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds Shrimp (raw, peeled, deveined, with the tails removed)
  • 3 Bell Peppers any color combinations you like
  • 1 small to medium red or yellow onion your preference or some of both!
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning your choice of brands - we prefer Louisiana or New Orleans Style

  • 1 Tablespoon Smoked Paprika make sure you get smoked!
  • 2 Limes
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro optional
  • 1-2 packages of flour tortillas I like using the small ones but any size will work
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. If your raw shrimp is frozen, put it in a colander and run barely warm water over them until they are thawed - grey and flexible. (this only takes minutes!) Leave them to drain the excess water from the colander in the sink.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the oil and all of the dry spices. Mix together really well. Chop or slice your onion and peppers and add them, mixing to coat them evenly. Add your raw shrimp and mix them in well until all of the shrimp and veggies are evenly coated.
  4. Spread shrimp and vegetable mixture evenly into a single layer on a shallow, tinfoil lined, metal baking sheet. This might take two baking sheets.
  5. Wrap your flour tortillas in tin foil and put them on the extra oven rack. Bake the sheet pans full of shrimp and vegetables along with the foil packet of tortillas in preheated 450 degree oven for 8 minutes if you are using small shrimp. For medium to large size shrimp, bake an additional 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and squeeze the juice from cut up fresh limes over the entire pan and sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro and a fine layer of additional smoked paprika.
  7. Serve with the warm tortillas and enjoy!
