Cajun Shrimp Scampi

by 247tasty

This Cajun Shrimp Scampi is pretty darn delicious! Its smoky, spicy seasoning is a classic Cajun flavor. By far one of my favorite Cajun recipes. It’s a must-try and I promise this dish worth everything! It is super satisfying, it makes my mouth water. You can try this with chicken, too and it’s equally tasty. Having this on your dinner table feels like dining in at one of the expensive restaurants downtown. I will always give this a 5-star. Try it and see for yourself!

shredded parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon basil
salt and pepper to taste
