  • 24-36 shrimp tails and shells removed
  • 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning blend homemade or store-bought (recipe link in instructions)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  • Prepare your shrimp by rinsing them (if necessary) and removing any tails and shells. If using frozen shrimp, thaw completely before using.
  • Heat a large cast iron or other non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the oil.
  • Pat the shrimp dry with some kitchen paper and add the shrimp to a bowl.
  • Add the Cajun seasoning (make your own in just a few minutes using THIS RECIPE). Toss well to coat.
  • Add the shrimp to the hot pan and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked through. 
  • Remove to a plate or bowl and sprinkle with fresh parsley if desired.
  • Serve hot over rice, potatoes, or a salad, or in a wrap.



These shrimp can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days after cooking to use for meal prep lunches or dinners, if desired.
