Cajun shrimp with roasted baby carrots

Hey guys and happy Wednesday! Are you ready for another recipe?

 

Let’s get into it. This recipe was inspired by the time that I spent in the Florida Keys. When I was there, I consumed huge amounts of shrimp and other seafood. Before I left, I made sure to stock up with the cajun seasoning they use. Don’t worry, I have seen more and more stores have it in Europe as well, so make sure you check it out when you do your shopping next time.

Mince the garlic and cut the chili pepper and add it to the shrimp. Add the other tablespoon of the oil and the soy sauce, the cajun seasoning, and the lemon juice. Mix well and you are good to go. You can leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours if you want to. Heat up a pan and add the shrimp. Be careful, because it is very easy to overcook them. It should be ready in 2-3 minutes.
