  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce or tamari (for gluten-free diets)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey (leave out for sugar-free diets)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp, (defrosted, if frozen)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored and sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, cored and de-seeded (leave out if you don’t like spicy food)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • Corn or flour tortillas, warmed (optional, for serving; exclude for low-carb diets or substitute for sautéed cauliflower rice or low-carb tortillas)


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce (or tamari), water, honey, Worcestershire sauce, ground ginger, chili powder, and minced garlic. Whisk to combine.
  2. Add the shrimp to the mixing bowl and let it sit for at least 15 minutes to marinate.
  3. While the shrimp is marinating in the sauce, prep your vegetables for the fajitas.
  4. After the shrimp is done marinating, drain it from the marinade using a colander or a strainer.
  5. Then, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Pour in the oil and let it heat up for a few minutes.
  6. Add the onion, bell pepper slices, and jalapeño (if using) and cook for about 3 minutes, or until they start to soften.
  7. Then, add the marinated and drained shrimp and cook with the onions and peppers for 3 minutes.
  8. Use tongs to flip the shrimp and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes with the vegetables, or until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through.
  9. Turn off the heat and serve hot, with warmed tortillas.


  1. You can let the shrimp marinate for up to a day covered in the refrigerator.
  2. Other items that can be served with the fajitas: salsa, guacamole, lime wedges, and sour cream (use dairy-free yogurt or sour cream, if necessary)
  3. Nutrition data does not include tortillas or any toppings.
