  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a large sheet pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, juice from 1 lime, chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, and onion powder.
  • Place onions and peppers on a prepared sheet pan. Pour half of the marinade over the veggies. Transfer pan to oven and roast for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add shrimp to the bowl with the remaining half of the marinade and marinate shrimp while the veggies are roasting in the oven.
