The is one of my go-to dinners right now, because it’s super fast and easy, and tastes really (REALLY) good. It’s a lot like the Cajun chicken pasta that you can get at Chili’s, and if you wanted to use chicken instead of shrimp, go for it. I’ve put the spice level at about a one, right where the kids can still eat it and enjoy it, without having to take a giant drink of water between every bite. If you like a lot of heat, you can triple the Cajun seasoning, and if you’re somewhere in the middle, just double it.
Also, if you don’t have the lemon pepper seasoning hanging around the house, just add a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. You could also dice up some fresh tomatoes to stir in just before serving, something the kids and I would love, but Bo gets weirded out when there’s “cooked tomatoes” in something, and arguing that these wouldn’t be cooked was next to impossible. So, the next time frozen shrimp are on sale, stock up, because this is a great 20 minute meal!
