This Cajun Shrimp Scampi dinner recipe has everything you could possibly want. Tender and succulent shrimp is coated in the cajun seasoning which adds just the right amount of flavor. The cream sauce only takes a few minutes to come together and the pasta soaks up all the flavor.
- 12 raw shrimps (as many as you’d like, I like having a lot in my pasta)
- 1 serving of pasta (preferably a linguine)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbs. butter
- 1/2 c. heavy cream
- shredded parmesan cheese
- 1/8 tsp. basil
- salt and pepper to taste
- flour (to thicken)
- cajun seasoning
- 1/4 c. parsley
- olive oil
How To Make Cajun Shrimp Scampi
Heat a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the butter, a drizzle of olive oil and bring to a boil.
Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
Add the shrimps.
Next, season the shrimps with the Cajun seasoning., be generous (to your liking)!
When the shrimps are pink on one side, flip them and cook for another minute and remove them from the pan, leaving the liquid.
Add the heavy cream, basil, parsley, salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil and whisk in sprinkles of flour until sauce thickens.
Lower heat to medium-low and add shrimp again.
Toss shrimp to coat with sauce, and serve over pasta. Topping with parmesan cheese.
