Baked Salmon Fajitas with Bell Peppers and Onions, Sliced Avocado and Lime Wedge in Bowl with Rice

Fajitas are a staple around our house. They are one of the few meals that Kurt actually makes himself, but for this fajita recipe, I took charge and switched things up a bit!

Inspired by these popular 10 Minute Veggie Fajita Rice Bowls, I turned these sheet pan salmon fajitas into a bowl for myself, but also served them in a more traditional style in flour tortillas for Kurt. Both versions are totally delicious, so serve as you’d like! You could even ditch the rice and tortillas to make this recipe Whole 30 approved!

These salmon fajitas couldn’t be easier to make! Place two pieces of salmon on a baking sheet and surround them with bell peppers and onions. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika and salt. Pour this mixture over the salmon and veggies.

Place the salmon fajitas in the oven for 20 minutes.

While the fajitas are cooking, either prepare rice for salmon fajita rice bowls or warm tortillas for traditional fajitas. Slice and dice the optionally toppings of your choice, such as sliced avocado, fresh cilantro or diced tomatoes.

Just Chili California Hot Sauce is my FAVORITE on fish tacos and it’s absolutely delicious on these salmon fajitas!
