Ingredients

  • Cajun Shrimp
  • 1lb Shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Dried Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Salt, more or less to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Cajun Rice
  • 2 cups Parboiled Brown Rice
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 1 small Onion, sliced
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 3/4 cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp Green Onions, thinly sliced for garnish

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Season shrimp with cajun seasoning, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt and black pepper; set aside for at least 15 minutes.

2

Heat olive oil in a 10 inch skillet or deep pan over medium high heat. Add shrimp and saute until cooked, about 2-5 minutes, flipping at the halfway point. Remove and transfer to a plate; set aside.

3

Melt butter in skillet then add onions, sauté for 2-3 minutes then add garlic and continue to saute until fragrant and softened. Stir in chicken broth and rice. Season with cajun seasoning, italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste. Increase heat to high and bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently for around 3 minutes, then reduce heat to medium low and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed. Cover and transfer to oven for about 12-15 minutes or until rice tender to your liking. Remove from oven, allow to rest for 10 minutes, stir in shrimp, garnish with green onions and enjoy!

Notes

For best results you must use parboiled, other rice grains will not work.
