This is a delicious, spicy, quick and easy shrimp appetizer or dinner that is ready in only 10 minutes. I like a medium spice level and the spice level was just right for me. If you like a mildly spiced dish, I recommend cutting back on the cayenne. Next time I think I would like to grill the shrimp instead. Thanks for sharing the recipe SlimCookins.
This was really good! My husband said it was the BEST shrimp dish he'd ever had! Score. Thanks for the recipe.
This will go into my recipe box!! Very quick and easy. Just the right amount of spice. Served with cheddar biscuits and the family enjoyed it thanks!!
This was absolutely delicious & super easy!! I mixed the spices up in a Ziploc bag & tossed the shrimp in it to fully coat before cooking. I cooked them about 1 1/2 minute per side on medium high. I served it with roasted vegetables (asparagus, fresh green beans, red bell pepper & grape tomatoes coated with a little olive oil & sprinkled with salt & pepper roasted in oven at 400 degrees on parchment paper for about 12-14 minutes)on top of leafy greens. I drizzled a little lime basil vinaigrette (Maple Grove of Vermont Fat-Free brand)over it all & sprinkled a little feta cheese over the top. Absolutely perfect for a summer meal, especially after a good workout!
Rather than go with a new Cajun seasoning, we use Creole Seasoning Blend by Joslyn from this site since it is kept on hand. We also add some Badia Blackened Redfish Seasoning (about 4 parts Creole to 1 part blackened seasoning). You can adjust the ingredients to get the level of spiciness/heat suitable to your taste preference. These spicy shrimp can be served as a snack with a beer or cocktail or made into a meal. Sometimes we simply combine them with rice and have a side dish such as broccoli and other times we’ve created a sweet & spicy dish by adding a sweet sauce such as Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce or Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Sauce (both of which are made by Robert Rothchild Farms). So quick and easy to make, and these are always a hit so long as the person likes shrimp . . . this recipe works equally well with sea scallops.
Very good and so easy to adjust to your family's tastes. Paired with Garlic Rice from this site and was perfect with it.
Absolutely 5 stars! Yummy! I had this for dinner last night and wished I was not on a diet so I could cook and gobble up the entire bag of shrimps!
It is amazingly delicious and so simple. I added 2/4 teaspoons of Creole seasoning which made it spicier. It was awesome without being overwhelmingly spicier.
