Cajun Style Peel and Eat Shrimp

In Just Good Food, Miscellaneous on September 6, 2011 at 7:46 pm

This is a great recipe. I doubt you’ll find any true Southerner who doesn’t like this one. I know some people don’t like to peel shrimp and get their hands all dirty. Boo hoo. Believe me, there are some diapers that are a lot worse than shrimp peels. Just suck it up and get in there. No reason to let a little shrimp peel stand in your way of a delicious dinner. Put a roll of paper towels on the table and peel your little heart out.

Here are the ingredients. Please note I used fresh thyme instead of dried thyme. I also used fake garlic instead of real garlic (which was what was on hand - gasp).

Mix all that up with the shrimp.

 

Bake in individual foil packets. Soooooo easy!

Serve this dish with a loaf of bread (the juices are great for dipping), a green salad and some cold beers. This is a spicy dish….you might want to scale back on the red pepper and tabasco if you are spice averse. Enjoy!
