    mary winecoff's Note:

    This is a fast and easy dish that does not require whipping cream for the sauce. I made it with skim milk and it turned out just fine. We use a lot a cajun spice so adjust to your tastes.

      how great is this recipe! we were wanting something different with our shrimp, spicy, cajun, but still light, and this really did the trick. we used 1 cup fat free half and half, and 1/2 cup milk, as we felt it didn't need to be as creamy. other than that we used a tbsp butter instead of 1/4 cup butter, and used 1 tbsp (we eyed it) of EVOO. It was awesome and we'll definitely make again. thanks!

      This was really good but the Cajan seasoning was a little too salty and not quite spicy enough, I will try it again.

      Good! The cajun seasoning I used made it too salty and spicy for my taste so I think next time I will use 1 T. black pepper instead of that. I also used skim milk and light margarine.
      I served with salad and Bisquick cheddar biscuits. Thanks!!
