Quick & Easy Shrimp

I decided to try a recipe that I found off another blog called Keeping up with the Joneses that looked fairly easy to make.  Here is the link from Keeping Up With The Joneses.  I’m not a huge fan of shrimp or Cajun food, but my husband is.  This recipe was so simple and really the shrimp didn’t taste too fishy.  I modified the recipe a bit so here is my version:

Easy Creole Shrimp
1 lb of large raw frozen shrimp, thawed*
1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning (I substituted Mrs. Dash no salt seasoning)
1/4 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
2 cloves garlic, minced (I used the garlic in a jar)
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp butter
Optional: serve with Brown & Wild rice
  1. Pour Cajun (Mrs. Dash) seasoning over the thawed shrimp. Stir it around to coat.
  2. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the dressing and garlic. Cook and stir for one minute. Then add the butter pat for a creamier sauce.
  3. Stir in the shrimp. Cook and stir for 3-5 minutes. I would occasionally flip them over, too. You’ll know they’re almost ready when most of the liquid has evaporated and the shrimp is starting to brown.
  4. Sprinkle the chopped, fresh parsley over the top of the shrimp.
  5. Serve over rice
Total Time: 15 minutes  
Serves: 2

And my picture is sideways.. Don’t know how to fix that yet.

The finished product!
My husband and Bear really liked it. That’s right, my dog does usually get a morsel or two of whatever I cook 🙂  Even though, this is all he does while I cook
