DIRECTIONS

  • First- turn on the kitchen fan an/or open a window- there may soome smoke when you make this and you don't want to have to stop in the middle to go turn off the fire alarm.
  • Heat a large, deep skillet over fairly high heat (medium high on an electric stove).
  • Melt butter (if you like a little more, go ahead- just so long as it is real butter, not margarine or spread) but be quick as you don't want it to burn.
  • Immediately toss in the shrimp and start stirring very quickly with a slotted spoon to coat with butter.
  • With your free hand, shake Cajun seasoning liberally to coat all sides of the shrimp- as much as you like.
  • I go very heavy on the seasoning because I like it very hot.
  • Let shrimp sit without stirring for 1 minute, then quickly turn over and cook another minute- the goal here is to get the shrimp golden brown.
  • Immediately toss into a serving bowl and serve as an appetizer with toothpicks.
  • This may take a little trial& error to get the seasonings the way you like it- I absolutely do not measure this at all.
  • I use Paul Prudhomme's Cajun Seasoning but you can use any brand you like.
