This Cajun shrimp recipe is full of flavor and it’s quick and easy to put together. With just a few simple ingredients you can have a delicious dinner on the table in just over 30 minutes. This isn’t just a shrimp recipe, either. You can easily substitute chicken or sausage for the shrimp.
I have been messing around with gumbo and jambalaya recipes for years. I never found one that was good enough to share until now. This Cajun shrimp recipe is the perfect combination of quick, easy and absolutely delicious. I don’t normally have shrimp on hand, but I think that this dish would be fantastic with chicken and even some sausage. You can adjust the heat by adding more Tabasco, or take it out entirely if you don’t like spicy.
This dish begins with a roux, which is a combination of butter and flour that is then cooked until it’s light or dark brown. A roux is common in traditional gumbo recipes. Just be careful not to burn it!
