Shrimp is such an easy and versatile seafood. I can literally eat it all day long, from Shrimp & Grits (recipe coming soon) to main course for dinner, like I have prepared here. Cilantro Shrimp with Cajun Brown Rice is healthy, flavorful meal and is also so simple to make.
I have made this recipe a number of ways, with parsley along with the cilantro or lime instead of lemon. One thing is for certain, I never leave out the fresh garlic. It’s one of my favorite ingredients and I try to put it in as many dishes as possible. Fresh garlic is my go to, but the powder works well when making your own seasonings. It is rare for me to buy seasoning packets like, taco or Cajun seasonings. I always just make my own. If you are unsure about what to put in them, just read the back of the spice bottle and experiment at home. Don’t be afraid to try to new spices, you may surprise yourself with your tasty mixture. .
