So sorry my recipes have not been posting as often as I would like. I do have a crazy schedule with night classes, a day job, and castings, so please forgive me.... Tonight I am in a rush since I have an 8:30 p.m. rehearsal so this meal needs to be quick and delicious. I decided to make this Cajun Style Shrimp dish that is supposed to take only 20 min. I found this great recipe on foodnetwork.com and after a little bit of tweaking of the recipe (shh!..I added shallots), I will cook and post pictures later! The videos take a lot of time to edit and post, so they will not come as often anymore. Needless to say, I will still post recipes with pics every week; and videos at least once a month! Please let me know your thoughts or opinions on the recipes or videos, or the site in general. Hugs and kisses to you all!
Cajun Style Shrimp and Rice
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
- 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails intact
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
- 2 bunches scallions, chopped
- 3 cups cooked white rice
- 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
- Lemon wedges and chopped parsley, for serving on top
Heat the butter, olive oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the Cajun seasoning and shrimp and cook, stirring, until the shrimp begin to curl, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the tomatoes and scallions to the skillet and cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add the rice and 1/4 cup water and continue to cook until the rice is warmed through and the shrimp are opaque, about 3 more minutes. Stir in the parsley and serve with lemon, if desired.
