21 Day Fix Baked Shrimp Fajitas

Using a baking dish for roasting an entire meal is a one-pot meal reinvented.  Nothing adds flavor to meat and veggies like oven-roasting.
These fajitas would make an easy and quick weeknight meal, especially if you do the prep work (cutting and slicing) ahead of time! 
21 Day Fix Baked Shrimp Fajitas

Baked Shrimp Fajitas

  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • ½ Tbsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ Tbsp corn starch
  • 2 small (or 1 lg.) onion
  • 2 medium green bell peppers
  • 2 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 lb. raw shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium lime
  • 8 (6-inch) tortillas (optional)
  • ½ cup sour cream (optional)
  • ¼ bunch cilantro (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients for the fajita seasoning in a small bowl and set aside (chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, sugar, salt, and corn starch).
Cut the onion and bell peppers into ¼ to ½ inch wide strips. Place them in a large 9×13 inch casserole dish.
Sprinkle the seasoning over the vegetables. Drizzle the olive oil over everything and then use your hands to toss the ingredients until everything is well coated in oil and seasoning. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring once half way through.
Add shrimp to baking dish and stir thoroughly.  Cook for an additional 15 minutes or until shrimp are cooked through and pink.
Squeeze the juice from half of the lime over top of the shrimp and vegetables after it comes out of the oven.
(Optional:  Scoop a small amount of meat and vegetables into the center of each tortilla. Top with a few sprigs of cilantro, a dollop of sour cream, and an extra squeeze of lime if desired.)
(21 Day Fixers:  This recipe makes 4 servings.  Each serving [without tortillas and sour cream] = 1 red, 2 green, and 1 tsp.)
