Easy, fast, and made in just one pan, Sheet Pan Fajita Fish Tacos makes the perfect weeknight dinner!
This recipe has been a staple around our house for months and it occurred to me that I hadn't actually shared it here.
Maybe that's because the method is so simple that a recipe is hardly required.
I love the ease in which this one comes together, and the fact that only one pan is required makes it a snap to make and clean up a total breeze.
The savory combo of roasted peppers and onions, combined with a dead-simple Mexican spice blend, makes these easy fajitas perfect for a weeknight.
The flavor combo is also delicious enough to appeal to even the pickiest fish eater, especially when wrapped in a warm tortilla.
I prefer mine in a lettuce wrap, making it a great meal to customize based on your family's taste preferences and dietary needs.
Whatever you do, just don't skip the fresh squeeze of lime at the end. Yum!
I hope you like this new weeknight classic. Now, let's make some Sheet Pan Fajita Fish Tacos!
RECIPE & KID-FRIENDLY ADAPTATIONS
1 | Any type of firm white fish works here. I prefer wild-caught cod, but tilapia or halibut would also work.
2 | Serve the fajita fish with whatever fixin's you like. Lettuce wraps work for a low-carb, Whole30, or corn or flour tortillas work for a more traditional spin on fajitas.
