Low FODMAP Shrimp Fajitas are an onion-free take on the Tex-Mex classic. This 30-minute recipe features 8 flavorful ingredients and can be made in one skillet.


  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, seeds removed and sliced into thin strips (about 1 cup strips)
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, seeds removed and sliced into thin strips (about ½ cup strips)
  • ½ small jalapeño pepper, seeds removed and minced (optional)
  • 12 ounces uncooked medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons low FODMAP taco seasoning
  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed

Optional toppings: Sliced green onion tops (green parts only), cilantro, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream (up to 2 tablespoons per serving)


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add the green and red bell pepper strips. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the peppers start to soften and brown slightly on the edges, about 6-8 minutes. Stir in optional minced jalapeño and cook to soften, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer the peppers to a clean plate.
  2. To the now-empty skillet, add the shrimp. Spread the shrimp out into a single layer, leaving a little space in between each piece. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Flip the shrimp, and return the cooked peppers to the skillet.
  3. Stir in the taco seasoning and lime juice. Continue cooking until the shrimp are fully opaque and cooked through, about 1-2 minutes more.
  4. Serve the shrimp in warm corn tortillas with optional toppings.

Storage: Best enjoyed right after preparing. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for use within 2-3 days. Freezing not recommended.
