Spiced veggies, Canadian shrimp, and one sheet pan — it’s the ultimate convenient weeknight family meal. Because Canadian coldwater shrimp is often available pre-cooked, it’s easy to simply reheat and add to your meals as a super-quick protein source. Try this recipe for a party with a topping bar for customized fajitas featuring favourites like shredded or crumbled cheese, shredded lettuce, sour cream, avocado, tomato or corn salsa, cilantro, lime, and green onions.
In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, orange juice concentrate, oil, chili powder, paprika, salt, and cayenne; remove 2 tbsp of the mixture to a small bowl. Add onion, peppers, and tomatoes to remaining mixture in a large bowl; toss to coat. Scrape mixture onto parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet.
Add shrimp to the small bowl; toss to coat and set aside in refrigerator to marinate for 10 minutes.
Bake in preheated 450°F (230°C) oven for 10 minutes; stir well. Bake until browned, tender, and slightly shrivelled; about 12 minutes.
Stir shrimp mixture into vegetable mixture. Bake until heated through; about 2 minutes for pre-cooked shrimp or 5 minutes for raw.
Serve shrimp and vegetables in tortillas with your favourite fajita toppings.
Tip: Wrap tortillas in foil and place on second rack of oven for 1 minute to warm them before serving.
Tip: You can make this recipe with either cooked or raw shrimp.
