1/1 Photo of Cajun Shrimp and Mashed Cauliflower
I used mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potato or grits to accompany the shrimp in order to lower the glycemic index. If you don’t have Cajun seasoning or cannot find gluten-free Cajun seasoning, you can just use some paprika, cayenne pepper and black pepper. You can also use taco seasoning instead.
