Looking for a quick, low-carb and totally healthy dinner bursting with Tex-Mex flavors? Then these Easy Shrimp Fajitas are just what you need on your table!

We get this fajita party started by sauteing onions, green, red and yellow bell peppers with a little oil, salt, and pepper until slightly brown and caramelized. Then in the same pan, we sear fresh delicious shrimp seasoned with spices like chili powder and garlic powder.Easy Shrimp Fajitas Shrimp on a fork. Everything gets tossed together and then drizzled with fresh and tangy lime juice and a touch of soy sauce that balances this dish with a dash of addicting umami flavor.

These Easy Shrimp Fajitas are naturally low-carb. So, to keep it that way, serve with guacamole and salsa, and your favorite low-carb tortillas. For a more filling family meal, serve with black beans on the side. And don’t forget a few twists of fresh lime and your favorite hot sauce to finish.Easy Low Carb Shrimp Fajitas on a skillet next to lime and avocado
