Let’s face it. The meal prep lifestyle can be difficult without proper time management. This one sheet-pan shrimp fajitas recipe helps solve that. Prepping is further complicated when events and commitments surface. My recent road block was the annual Kansas City Restaraunt Week. As a foodie, I usually try to commit to trying out at least two-three new restaurants. I did exactly that!
My time was very limited to plan out and actually cook my recipes. Sheet pan and one-skillet dinners are perfect for saving time. For this dish, I literally whipped everything together in a bowl, drizzled olive oil, sprinkled seasonings throughout, and spread everything on a sheet pan. Shrimp cooks incredibly fast. You really can’t go wrong here!

I visited four restaurants for Restaurant Week. To provide a little background, Restaurant Week is an annual event in which multi-course meals are served for a largely discounted price. A portion of the proceeds raised by each restaurant is donated to various charitable organizations. Two of the restaurants I visited offered FOUR-course meals. The others offered three. Even with my two-a-days workout routine, I needed a meal with incredibly low carbs, yet delicious. These fajitas made an amazing recovery meal. I chose not to use tortillas because the fajitas are satisfying on their own, and HELLO, I could use a mini break from high carb meals.
As noted below, I used Trader Joe’s Reduced-Guilt Guacamole to save myself additional time. Check out my homemade guac recipe here. Also a great option!
The macros on typical guacamole are usually really good. Feel free to make your own if you wish. From time to time, I love to use the reduced-guilt guac from Trader Joe’s. I love the use of Greek yogurt. Very tasty!
To keep the macros low, and to continue on the low carb trend of the dish, I paired the fajitas with a small side salad. I used the Parmesan Ranch dressing from Trader Joe’s.
