Cajun Shrimp


Everythings better when it turns Cajun. This is a real easy recipe that tastes like a million bucks.

These spicy shrimp can really kick up your taste buds, and get the endorphins going. In case you didn't know, endorphins are released when we eat spicy, hot foods, they make us feel good and happy. It's one of the reasons we like eating spicy foods of all kinds.

Here are a couple of ideas to serve these Cajun Shrimp:

  • They can be served as an appetizer on a small plate, in a puddle of sauce.
  • You can serve them on skewers with a little sauce drizzled on them as an appetizer, called Shrimp Pops.
  • How about a great Hors d'Oeuvre like Shrimp Shooters?
  • You could serve these on top of a steak for a cajun style Surf and Turf.
  • Or could use them over pasta as in my Blackened Shrimp Fettucini.

To vary this recipe, you could serve the blackened shrimp with a variety of sauces like the ones shown below. They're all available on this web-site, just "Click" on any one of them to go to that recipe.

The key is, learning to blacken shrimp opens up a whole bunch of great ideas for recipes using them. I know you'll love this my version of Cajun Style Shrimp, especially with the great flavor of my Butt Kickin' Blacken.

  • 1 Pound, Shrimp, 30 - 40 count, peeled, raw

  • 8, Skewers

  • 1/4 Cup, Butt Kickin' Blacken, Seafood Blend, as needed

  • Sauce to Drizzle On, see notes

  • Chipotle Sauce, optional

  • Citrus Sauce, optional

1. Thread the shrimp onto the skewers by going first through the tail, then through the thicker part

2. Sprinkle some blacken on, don't use too much.

3. Set them on a hot grill and cook 1 - 2 minutes per side.

4. Serve immediately or at room temperature with a little sauce.
