Cajun Shrimp Mac and Cheese

Cajun Shrimp Mac and Cheese

Cajun Shrimp Mac and Cheese – Cajun shrimp are resting atop creamy baked mac and cheese! You won’t be able to resist making this recipe! Cajun shrimp features shrimp coated in a blend of Cajun-inspired spices then cooked until longer pink.

Cajun shrimp can be served in a multitude of ways; it can be served over rice or in a dish like this Quinoa Bowl, as a Cajun Shrimp Pizza or in a skillet and served with a side of crusty bread. The heat level in this recipe is totally up to you! My family doesn’t do spice that well, so my seasoning was mild. I find that in general, the pre-made Cajun seasoning jars tend to be mild. If you like things spicier, toss the shrimp with hot sauce in addition to the seasoning or add a few dashes of hot sauce to your mac and cheese! This recipe is great for the family or for entertaining, it is a real palate pleaser! This recipe can easily be adapted to adhere to the Keto diet. Omit the pasta and either serve your shrimp with veggies or andouille sausage for a keto meal. No Cajun seasoning? Make your own! Use a blend of dried thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, Cayenne pepper, chipotle chili powder, and salt.
