Cajun Shrimp and Mashed Cauliflower

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by InnerHarmonyNutrition

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.

this was amazing. I had zero expectations because I had failed at my last cauliflower recipe but this blew my mind. I did add more Cajun seasoning because I am a spice freak. I was literally saying "yum" after each bite.
