Sheet-Pan Shrimp Fajitas Tips

Should you remove the shrimp tails before baking the fajita mixture?

You don't have to remove the shrimp tails for this sheet-pan dinner. Just make sure they're peeled and deveined before cooking.

What's the best way to warm up tortillas for sheet-pan shrimp fajitas?

Warm your corn tortillas by using a tortilla warmer or place them in a hot skillet over medium-high heat. Once each one is warm and brown spots are forming, flip and warm the other side. Store them in aluminum foil to keep them warm for longer.

What else can you put on sheet-pan shrimp fajitas?

There are so many ways to dress up fajitas! Add sliced jalapenos, cotija cheese or sour cream for some extra flavor.
