I have also made this using scallops, or a mix of shrimp and scallops, and it is just as nice! I like to serve it with rice and a refreshing cucumber salad. The hotness will depend on the blend of your Cajun Seasoning. Mine is pretty hot, I make my own blend.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs raw large shrimp or 1 1⁄2 lbs prawns, peeled and cleaned
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion, sliced in rings
- 1⁄2 sweet red pepper, sliced in thin strips
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup cream
- chopped fresh parsley, to serve
- Mix together the paprika powder, chili flakes, cajun seasoning and salt, mix with the prawns and leave for 20 minutes.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan, on a medium heat fry the onion rings, peppers and garlic for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Put up the heat and add the prawns, fry until they start to color.
- Add the cream whilst stirring, lower the heat again and simmer until prawns are done, do not over-cook.
- Sprinkle parsley on top and serve.
Xcellent! I used green peppers, (as that was on hand) but it didn't change the recipe not one bit. I could see serving this to the Queen ~ it is so good and so pretty too! I didn't cook my shrimp as long, since they only need to be cooked so little, and they were perfect. Made in memory of a lovely lady, Pets. 2011
We really enjoyed this dish. The flavors went so well together. I used a mixture of Red & Yellow Peppers because that was what I had on hand. It was just spicy enough with out being too hot. I used what will probably be the last of my fresh Gulf Shrimp in this. This is easy to put together, but is definitely something you could serve to company also. I served it over Angel Hair Pasta, with fresh sliced tomatoes and buttered french bread YUMMY! Made for the LIvestrong Cook-a-thon event for Pets R Us Sorry for the late submission :(
We loved this and hoped our dinner would never finish-it was that good! It was perfectly spiced for us and I made it using Pets' own Cajun Seasoning I used slightly smaller local wild (and very sweet) prawns and served this over rice.
