I found a recipe for Quick Cajun Shrimp in an old recipe book I had lying around. I made quite a few changes and came up with a delicious Cajun Shrimp recipe! My family loves shrimp…we don't eat it very often because it is pricey and they eat a LOT of it! 🙂
Recently I found a good deal on bags of frozen, cleaned and peeled shrimp. I bought a couple of bags and wanted to find a new way to season the shrimp.
This recipe was a big success with my family. Everyone gobbled these tasty little shrimps up!!
I used Phil Robertson's Cajun Seasoning for this dish. I think his seasoning is really good. I have trouble finding it in my local stores so I usually order it from Amazon! If you have a favorite Cajun seasoning…feel free to use that!
I baked this in the oven. It is a quick and easy way to cook this dish. You could try grilling the shrimp or even cooking this on the stove top. I think that cooking it in the oven really helps seal in the flavors from the marinade. Here is a picture of the shrimp on their way into the oven!
The night I made this shrimp, we just had it with baked potatoes. I think it would be really good with some cooked pasta. Just pour the cooked shrimp and marinade into a bowl of pasta and stir! Let me know if you try it like that!
What is your favorite way to cook shrimp? Have you tried Cajun Shrimp before?
- 1 pound cooked peeled, deveined medium to large shrimp (thawed)
- 2 Tablespoons cajun seasoning
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients except shrimp in an ungreased 13x9 baking pan.
Add shrimp and stir to coat shrimp completely in marinade.
Bake, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
You could cook some pasta and toss the cooked shrimp and marinade with the pasta for a one dish meal! You can add some grated Parmesan cheese and even veggies if you are feeling like it!

We love shrimp and the fact that this is made in the oven is a big plus for me. Thanks for posting such a delicious recipe.
Thanks Cathy…hope you enjoy it!
I was just telling my husband that I want to learn how to cook shrimp, but every time I start to grab it at the grocery store I am paralyzed by the price. Yikes! Thanks for the recipe though because I really want to try it!!! It looks delicious 🙂 Pinned too!
I got lucky and my store had some big bags on sale for $7 each recently so I snatched several up!
