Cajun Shrimp Caesar Salad
Cajun Shrimp Caesar Salad

So good!!! A keeper in our rotation as all three of us really enjoyed it.

This Cajun seasoning is bomb! Hubby is already planning other meals in which he can use it.

It was my first time making shrimp as my husband has typically done it and I’ve only maybe helped out before.

Pro Tip: The smaller the shrimp you use, the less flipping in the pan will be needed. why is this important? Shrimp cook really fast – even when you take them off the heat. I typically get as close in size as I can to small 71-90 ct 1 lb bag. Then I can just stir the shrimp around instead of *flipping*.

I’ve also tried with larger shrimp: medium shrimp (41-50 ct per lb) and they were great (and just as easy to cook)!

I never knew there was a whole art to dicing tomatoes so that you don’t end up w/ all the *mush*. 🍅 See a helpful link in the directions!

This is also one of my kid’s faves!!!

NOTE: To make this a Paleo or Whole30 recipe, just leave out the parmesan.
