Shrimp Fajitas

Shrimp Fajitas are one of our favorite easy shrimp recipes along with our Honey Garlic Shrimp. and Shrimp Boil. They’re so delicious and flavorful and they’re actually fun to serve and eat.

Tips and Secrets for Making Shrimp Fajitas

  • Buying peeled shrimp will save you preparation time.
  • It’s best to remove the tails on the shrimp before cooking, and this only takes a minute or two.
  • Thaw shrimp before cooking – here is a guide on how to thaw shrimp.
  • I used yellow bell peppers here, but you can use red bell peppers or green bell peppers if you prefer
  • You can also use a second skillet when heating the tortillas to save time.
  • You can make the shrimp mixture ahead of time. When it’s time to serve, just reheat it in the pan for a minute or two while you’re heating up the tortillas.

How to Serve Shrimp Fajitas

  • Family Style: People love to assemble their own fajitas, so you can put out the shrimp mixture, hot tortillas and garnishes for them to do it.
  • Pre-assembled: If you prefer, you can assemble the fajitas and place them side-by-side on a serving plate.

Other Ingredients You Can Add to This Dish
