A note on the lime

We love lime flavor, so we tend to go heavy on the lime juice for this and other recipes. With that said, limes come in different sizes so the juice of two limes can vary quite a bit. Just use your own preferences and adjust the amount of lime juice you use to suit your taste.

Ingredients

For the lime sauce:

  • 2 limes, juice of
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt

For the Fajitas:

  • 1.5 lbs jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced into strips
  • 1 onion, sliced into strips

For serving:

  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Chipotle aioli
  • Salsa
  • Chopped cilantro
  • 2 bunches broad leaf greens (bibb, romaine, chard, etc.) (or use corn or Siete tortillas – but greens only for Whole30)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit and line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Prepare the lime sauce by mixing all of the sauce ingredients together in a large bowl. You'll add the shrimp, bell peppers and onion to this bowl, so use a large enough bowl for that. Alternatively, you can mix the sauce up in a small bowl and just toss with the other ingredients on the sheet pan.
  • Slice bell peppers and onion as noted and add them to the bowl.
  • Add the shrimp to the bowl and toss/mix to coat everything with the lime sauce.
  • Spread the shrimp and veggies out on the sheet pan. Place in the oven to bake for 10-15 minutes. Watch carefully after 10 minutes and remove when the shrimp and veggies are cooked to your liking. If you want a little char on the top, you can switch the oven to broil for the last few minutes.
  • While the fajitas are cooking, prepare lettuce leaves for shells and toppings as desired.
  • To serve, spoon fajita mixture into lettuce leaves (or tortillas), top with your favorite toppings and enjoy.

  • This recipe I had tonight for dinner and you crushed it guys! Funny enough, I was very on the edge of trying a Keto diet because there’s so much info out there and I was really confused at the beginning lol.I can’t stress enough that people should try this before wasting money and their time on things that don’t work. It changed my life!

  • Oh man, I wish I had found this recipe for my stay-at-home cinco de Mayo! Looks like I just need to have a re-do of the holiday soon. Oh shucks! Haha. Can’t wait to try this!

  • This recipe is so easy to make- worked perfectly to throw together really quick after work. So big on flavor! This is a recipe that we will come back to again and again- so good.
