Cajun Garlic Butter Shrimp

Cajun Garlic Butter Shrimp

I was in the mood for shrimp and came across this recipe on Alyssa River’s site The Recipe Critic. It’s simple and quick to make and yet has some very complex flavors. I served it with faro which went well with the sauce. Rice goes well too.

Ingredients:
  1. ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  2. 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  3. 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  4. 1 Tablespoon whole grain mustard
  5. 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  6. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  7. 2 tablespoons butter
  8. 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  9. Black pepper
  10. Sliced green onions, for garnish
Mix the first six ingredients together in a bowl to make the sauce. Put the butter in a frying pan on high heat. When it melts, add the sauce and let it reduce for a few minutes.
Add the shrimp to the pan and sprinkle with black pepper. Stir and cook for a few minutes until the shrimp is done. Garnish with the chopped green onions. Really good and easy to make.

Also good with snow peas and rice.
