Cajun Garlic Butter Shrimp

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs frozen shrimps (shelled and defrosted)
  • 3 tbs. butter (I used Earth Balance soy free buttery spread to make it dairy free)
  • 2 Tbs. minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp. A Cajun Life Seafood Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. chili flakes
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  1. Preheat a big pan to medium low.
  2. To the pan, add the buttery spread, garlic and chili flakes. Saute the garlic just before it reach golden brown. Be careful not to burn the garlic or chili flakes.
  3. Add the shrimps. Stir every two minutes to make sure that the shrimps cook evenly.
  4. After 4 minutes, season with the cajun seasoning and lemon juice. Mix well.
  5. Once the shrimps become opaque (it takes about 8-10 minutes), turn off the heat and add the parsley.
  6. Mix and serve immediately.
