I am loving this recipe for cajun shrimp. It is made on a large sheet pan and baked in the oven. Oh My! It is so good.
My family and I, well mostly me, have been on a Cajun food kick lately. My recipe for Cajun blackened chicken thighs is often on our menu. We all love the heat that comes from the spices in the cajun blend.
I recommend making your own easy spice mixes. It means you have control of the amount of heat that goes in this or any of your cajun recipes.
RECIPE FOR CAJUN SHRIMP
Just look at those juicy, sweet shrimp. Don’t they look delicous? With the addition of the corn on the cob and the baby red potatoes, I had a complete meal in around 45 minutes.
This cajun spicy shrimp recipe is a clean eating recipe. It is made with real food that has no preservatives in it. I love feeding my family food that I know has no chemicals in it, don’t you?
In order to make sure the potatoes and corn were done at the same time as the shrimp, I took a few minutes to parboil them. As you can see, I left the skins on the little red potatoes.
Then I dumped it all on the sheet pan, slathered on the cajun butter and baked. In no time, a perfect cajun butter shrimp meal was served.
