Quick Cajun Shrimp

This dish is quick! You'll be enjoying succulent shrimp in no time.

2 1/2 Minute Cajun Shrimp

  • 1 lb. raw, wild caught shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 2-3 tsp. RealTaste Elevate Seasoning, or to taste

  • 2 Tbsp, lime juice

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

1. Heat oven to 425.

2. Mix shrimp, Elevate, lime juice and oil.

3. Place shrimp on a sheet pan in the oven.

4. Cook for 6 minutes, or until they just start to turn pink


Shrimp cook fast, be careful to not overcook them! You want them to have what I can best describe as a pop when you bite into them. You definitely don't want shrimp with a chewy texture.

I like to use 24 count per pound; it's not too big and not too small.

This pairs perfectly on a green salad with black beans and mango avocado salsa over a bed of brown rice or buckwheat.

Save the shrimp shells to make seafood broth. Store the shells in the freezer if you don't make it right away.
