Cajun Shrimp

Cajun Shrimp is an extremely good recipe for shrimp lovers! Everything in the recipe is in perfect balance. Serve over toasted garlic bread slices with a tossed green salad with your favorite dressing!

Cajun Shrimp

Also good with grits! I like to serve it alongside Paula Deen’s Baked Garlic Cheese Grits.

This is such a quick and easy recipe and perfect for a weeknight meal, but it’s also good enough to serve company.
