Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas
Fajitas are one of my favourite meals and normally I grill or pan fry the meat but you can also pan roast the entire meal! Being able to roast everything on a single sheet pan in the oven makes thing so super quick and easy! You simply need to toss the meat, in this shrimp, in taco seasoning along with slices of peppers and onions in some oil before roasting on a sheet pan in the oven! It's as simple as that! Shrimp works well in this recipe because it does not take long to cook but you could also use thin sliced of chicken or beef. These fajitas are the perfect quick meal for a busy weeknight and they are kid friendly when served as 'make your own' style with all of the topping served separately!
