Shrimp are notoriously known for being fast cooking. Now, we took that to the next level by making a practically hands off approach to a recipe that normally is all hands-on cooking. We’ve talked before about our love of taco night, but this time we are going fajita style! With this simple method of layering flavors and roasting everything in the oven, you not only get to enjoy one of the easiest dishes to make, but you are only dirtying one pan and the oven does all the work!
We have a few pointers before you get going though. Remember, shrimp cooks fast! So, you can’t just throw everything in all at once. This is a two-step process, but trust us, you will be rewarded with juicy, sweet, succulent shrimp if you take your time. We started this recipe by roasting the onions and peppers with the fajita seasoning and some fresh lime slices. This allows the flavors to really develop in the peppers and onions without overcooking the shrimp. After about 10 minutes, you toss in the fajita seasoned shrimp, allow that to bake for about 10 more minutes and you are just about done. We know, at this point you are ready to eat, but hear us out. At this point, you are going to put the pan under the broiler to give everything a nice quick char and you are done!
