Healthy Shrimp Fajita Bowls are ready in 20 minutes and perfect for the whole family. Enjoy this easy recipe with bell peppers, onions, and fresh avocado over rice, lettuce or in a tortilla!
Y’all, 20-minute meals are my JAM.
Most days I don’t have the time or patience for anything that takes more than 20 minutes to make. From what I hear on Instagram, you all don’t have the time, either.
What KILLS me is when I see people wasting so much money on take-out because they “don’t have the time” or they don’t think they can’t have a delicious, healthy, and quick meal all-in-one.
These healthy shrimp fajita bowls are a prime example of how you can have a flavorful, filling, and healthy meal on the table in 20 minutes!
There’s a common misconception that Mexican food is “unhealthy”. I use quotations around this word because I think the word healthy is highly subjective (you can read more about that in my e-book). The truth is, Mexican food can be one of the healthiest types of foods if you simply don’t go overboard on the chips and queso.
For example, in these healthy shrimp fajitas, you’ve got your protein (shrimp and black beans), healthy fats (avocado and olive oil) and your veggies (lettuce, bell peppers, and onions)! Everything you need to feel full and satisfied.
Most importantly though? IT TASTES DANG GOOD.
Mexican dishes are perfect year-round. You can make a loaded shrimp fajita salad with a margarita (or two) on the side, or a cozy fajita bowl in the winter!
Nothing says comfort food quite like a steamy shrimp fajita bowl loaded with beans, guacamole (maybe even a little harvest guacamole?) and sauteed vegetables. Am I right?

How To Make 20 Minute Healthy Shrimp Fajita Bowls!
- Add the peeled shrimp, chili lime seasoning, paprika, salt and pepper to a large bowl. Mix until combined/evenly coated and set aside.
- Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a hot skillet. Add garlic and onion until browned.
- Add your seasoned shrimp to the skillet with your onions and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, or until cooked through.
