I used this shrimp in place of chicken in my Cajun Chicken Alfredo Recipe and it was outstanding. Shrimp is a very touchy ingredient in my house, some love it and some hate it so I served the shrimp separate from the pasta. Its great for topping your pasta or as I discovered later its ten times better chilled the next day.

  • 2 T. Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon (juiced)
  • 6 Cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion (diced)

  • 2 t. Pepper
  • 1 T. Cajun Seasoning
  • 5 T. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 t. Tabasco Sauce

  3. Whisk in all other ingredients (except shrimp).
  4. Simmer together for about 15 min.
  5. Lay shrimp out on a lipped cookie sheet or casserole dish.
