“Speedy and delicious Cajun shrimp recipe. This is so good over a bed of rice. (If you can keep them from being gobbled up before the rice is done!) I actually like to cook the shrimp with the shells on, but that's a personal preference. (The 22 minute prep time includes letting the butter/spice mix rest for 20 minutes.)”
