Quick and Easy Cajun Shrimp
I don’t know about y’all, but life just never seems to slow down … does it?! It seems like there is always something to do and not enough hours in the day!
Since I know many of you are in the same boat with hectic schedules, I wanted to share one of my family’s favorite quick meals – Quick and Easy Cajun Shrimp. We usually have this with Dirty Rice (if time is really tight, I love Zatarains – otherwise I make it from scratch), a veggie of some kind and some hot buttered rolls or biscuits. Just because time is short, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor … and believe me, this meal is big on flavor!
