How to Prepare Beef and Shrimp Fajitas
Nothing gets me excited like a 1-pan dinner that’s ready in 20 minutes.
Fajitas are such a great meal. Veggies, protein, and all the toppings, wrapped up in a toasty tortilla. I often order them at Mexican restaurants (always a healthy choice), but they are so crazy simple to make at home.
This recipe uses an easy spice mix that’s combined and then sprinkled over the fajita veggies (lots of colorful peppers, please!), steak, and shrimp.
For this recipe, you need:
- Flank steak or skirt steak
- Shrimp (buy them peeled & deveined or easiest prep!)
- Bell peppers (green and red, or toss in some orange and yellow for a rainbow effect)
- Red or yellow onions
- Spices: Cumin, chili powder, coriander, and chili flakes
- Lime juice to add a tangy and fresh flavor!
When using cuts of beef like skirt or flank steak, be sure to cut it across the grain, so when baked it is tender.

Sheet Pan Fajitas
Easy 1-pan dinners are my favorite! When testing this recipe, I found it’s one of the easiest yet, because the steak and shrimp both cook in the same amount of time.
Toss all the ingredients in the spice blend and a little fajita seasoning, and you’re ready to get cooking!
To make this even easier, I baked these fajitas in my Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven. This oven doesn’t need preheated, meaning it’s ready when I am (and dinner is ready when my family is!).
The Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven comes with a broiling tray and a crisper tray. I had some extra veggies after loading up the broiler tray, so I tossed those on the crisper tray and baked them after I had pulled the first pan out.
I really love this oven for the summertime. There is no need to heat up my full sized oven when I can easily make dinner for 4 in it (and it emits so little heat it’s unnoticeable in my kitchen).
This little powerhouse of an oven is great for so many reasons. I use it as an economical way to reheat or cook lunch for 1, but it also is roomy enough inside to cook a full family meal.
How to Serve Beef and Shrimp Fajitas
While the fajitas are baking, decide on the toppings!
I love these as lettuce wraps, and that’s how I usually eat them. My family likes a variety of wheat and corn tortillas.
Other topping suggestions:
- Guacamole or avocado slices
- Chopped cilantro
- Cheddar cheese
- Sour cream
- Shredded lettuce or cabbage
You can also turn these fajitas into a full on fiesta by serving them with:
- Cauliflower Mexican Rice
- Mexican Caesar Salad
- Mexican Chocolate Tiramisu or a Paleo Tres Leches Cake
- Or – stuff the topping into a Perfect Baked Sweet Potato

Steak and Shrimp Fajitas
- 1 pound steak *flank steak or sirloin work
- 1/2 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
- 3 bell peppers cut into strips
- 1 onion cut into strips
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes optional
- 1 lime juice
- corn tortillas to serve
- guacamole or avocado
- cheese shredded
- sour cream
- Mix together spices and salt, and set aside.
- Cut steak against the grain into thin strips. The thin strips allow for the steak to cook as quickly as the shrimp.
- Add all the peppers and onions into a bowl, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and half of the fajita seasoning.
- Drizzle the shrimp with the other 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and toss with half of the remaining seasoning.
- Sprinkle the rest of the seasoning on the steak.
- Add the peppers, steak, and shrimp to a sheet pan in a single layer.
- Add the fajitas to the Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven and set the oven to Broil on 485º for 8 minutes.
- If baking in a conventional oven, preheat the oven to Broil on high, and when it’s ready, add the baking sheet to the oven for 10-12 minutes.
- Serve steak, shrimp and fajita veggies with tortillas and optional toppings.
