Recipe by gailanng
READY IN: 40mins




  • In a bowl mix the Cajun seasoning, the juice of 1/2 of the lime and olive oil. Toss in the shrimp and coat evenly. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the green onions, garlic and cayenne; cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the hot sauce and continue to cook on medium high heat until reduced by 1/2. Add the heavy cream and the juice of the remaining lime half and bring to a boil. Quickly reduce heat to medium low and allow to simmer until reduced by 1/3. Be careful not to allow the cream mixture to boil over. Salt to taste.
  • Heat grill to medium high heat. Grill shrimp on prepared skewers or on grill sheet just until opaque, turning only once. About 2 – 4 minutes per side depending on the size of the shrimp and your grill. Shrimp cook very quickly, so be careful and better to pull them off sooner than later.
  • Assemble shrimp onto individual serving plates, drizzle with the cayenne lime cream and garnish with additional lime wedges, chopped green onions and an additional dash of Cajun seasoning, if desired. .
