Ingredients

  • 1 lb raw sustainable shrimp; peeled, deveined, and cleaned
  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced into thing sticks
  • 1 chile, sliced or roughly chopped I used hatch chile, but you can use Anaheim or jalapeno if you like a lot of heat
  • 1 red onion, quartered then sliced into bite-sized wedges
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

For serving.

  • Flour tortillas
  • Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • Hot sauce
  • Chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • Lime wedges

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 450° F.
  • Prepare the shrimp (peel, devein, remove tails, rinse under cold water, and pat dry), and place them in a large bowl followed by the bell pepper, onion, and chile. Add all of the spice and, with a large spoon or your hands, toss to evenly coat all of the contents of the bowl in the spice mix.
  • Once everything is evenly coated, dump the contents of the bowl onto a sheet pan and spread everything out in an even layer. Place in the over, middle rack, and bake for 8-10 minutes; carefully toss everything with a large spoon or spatula halfway through cooking time.
  • Remove the pan from the oven when everything is cooked, and serve fajitas with flour tortillas and your choice of garnishes and condiments.
