      We doubled this recipe, as we had a pound of shrimp, and it was extremely tasty! We had this with refried black beans and guacamole for a lighter, but extremely satisfying dinner. The remoulade is unbelievably spicy! We loved the mix of flavors, but would consider backing off of the spices just a bit as we expected the remoulade to provide a bit of a cooling effect, and the spices really heated it up instead. We had leftovers, which were delicious as a light lunch the next day, too. Winner.

      I was excited about creating a sauce for the quesadillas, but when my boyfriend and I tried it we felt that the remoulade sauce did not pair well with the cajun-style shrimp quesadillas. The shrimp flavors were delicious but next time I would pair it with jalapeno ranch dressing.

      This was very good, easy, and quick. However, make sure to use UNSALTED cajun seasoning!! Thank you for posting.
