Cajun Broiled Shrimp Recipe ~ Quick, Easy Broiled Shrimp Perfect for a Light & Healthy Weeknight Dinner, Fancy Enough for Date Night and Delicious Enough for a Party Appetizer!
Shrimp you say? I know it’s a big fancy for this girl, but I’ve gotta get all fancy on you once in a while!
Don’t worry. It’s not a 13 step recipe. I don’t roll like that. Well, most of the time I don’t.
I bought a bag of shrimp (a specialty because holy expensiveness) and I needed some different ways to use them up. We first grilled the with butta and garlic. Oh my goodness amazing.
Next I tried this. Oh my goodness amazeballs!
Now be careful on how hot your cajun is and how much you add. Mine were a tad bit spicy. Like my upper lip might have been beading with sweat, but I’m a wuss, so you guys would have been fine with the amount of heat in the dish!
