Easy 15 Minute Shrimp Fajitas Recipe

This easy Shrimp Fajitas recipe is one of the quickest meals you will ever make! AND the most delicious!  We crave a good Mexican dinner every single week but normally we opt for a kid-friendly chilli so these fajitas made a yummy change.

Baby Led Weaning Friendly Easy Shrimp Fajitas Family friendly dinner recipe

Life can be frustrating at the moment and I’m all about nutritious, freezer fillers. When it comes to the weekends though I miss strolling around the city with my family or getting the odd takeaway. Not that we ever got too many but with the way things are we just haven’t been getting any. So, every weekend I have been going all out on the fake aways.

Last night we had Chicken Tikka Masala, I made it using chickpeas. I even made my 2 Ingredient Naan’s and I have a new recipe coming soon for Indian sides! Whoop!

Baby Led Weaning Friendly Easy Shrimp Fajitas Recipe Pico de Gallo

15 Minute Easy Shrimp Fajitas Recipe

Tonight I’m making an Easy Shrimp Fajitas recipe for kids!!!! You also have to say it in a Mexican accent. It’s kind of the rule of Fajitas 😀 I’m serving them with a delicious baby-friendly pico de Gallo (which is just like a yummy zingy salsa. Super easy to make and uses the new range of sunshine tomatoes. Like seriously, how summery does that jar look! 

I’m also making homemade tortillas from The Baby Led Feeding Cookbook. Super easy and they use only 3 ingredients (one of which is water!). It’s the little things that make life so much better.

How to serve babies

My kids have been eating this dish since they were super little. If you are using shrimp/prawns make sure you slice them super finely to make them safe. Never give a whole shrimp to a baby as it is unsafe. If you look at the photo above you will see how I serve.

You can also use a soft white fish which will cook at the same time as the shrimp. Cut into bite-sized chunks and cook in the same way. Alternatively, you can swap for chicken, or even beans for a delicious vegetarian fajitas recipe.

One Tray Recipes

Add all of the ingredients to one tray, coat in the oil and spices then bake! That’s it. Less cleaning, super quick, and almost zero effort!

Happy weekend!
