This is an easy and quick recipe for a midweek meal. The flavor is spicy but yummy. I use Emeril's Creole seasonings for the cajun spices. I love to serve this over rice and with a green vegetable or salad.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 1⁄8 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons parsley, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon thyme
- lemon wedge, as garnish
- In a bowl combine olive oil, butter, soy sauce, honey, cajun seasonings, lemon juice, thyme and parsley. Mix together well. Set sauce aside.
- Lay out shrimp, in single layer, in greased baking dish. Pour sauce over top of shrimp and turn shrimp to coat well. (you can do this up to 2 hours in advance).
- Bake in, preheated 400 degree oven, for 10-15minutes.
- Garnish with lemon wedges.
Great shrimp and exactly what I was yearning for. I couldn't find my Cajun seasoning so I substituded with Pistol River Mushroom Cajun seasoning. My shrimp turned out with a lot of kick that was find with me. I baked for 10 minutes and my shrimp was a little tuff. Watch your cooking times. I will be using the sauce to marinade some chicken wings tomorrow. Believe they will turn out great.
Outstanding! We love anything Cajun and these we just what I was looking for in flavor, ease of preparing and I got compliments from everyone eating so I guess you could say they loved them as much as I did! Thanks!
Yummy! I made this exactly as directed, using Louisiana spice blend. The soy sauce added great flavor, although I think that it takes the shrimp to a more asian flair. Either way, it's very simple to make, and quite yummy! I served it as an appetizer. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
