Cajun shrimp

Michael Graydon

Five simple ingredients are all it takes to put together this laid-back supper sauté.


Ingredients

  • 340-g bag frozen peeled cooked shrimp , medium or large
  • 2 tbsp garlic butter , or 2 tbsp butter with 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 large red bell pepper , thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 2 green onions , thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Rinse frozen shrimp with cold running water to remove any ice crystals. It’s not necessary to thaw. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium-high. Add red pepper. Stir-fry until it begins to soften, about 3 min.
  • Add shrimp and Cajun seasoning. Continue to stir-fry just until shrimp are completely thawed and hot, 4 to 6 min. Stir in green onions. Serve with rice alongside a crisp green salad.
