If you would have asked me five years ago that I would love to experiment in the kitchen, I would have thought you were crazy!

Five years later, I cook up a storm for myself.  I love making my food to where it tastes just as good as it does in a restaurant – thanks to my husband for giving me that mentality!  I am always looking for an easy but different recipe too!

Any of the recipes you see on my blog will have some sort of spice element to it.  I love spicy food and it all depends on the type of meat as to how spicy I make it.  Of course throughout these recipes, you can tone it down or add more spice to it!  Here is my recipe for Cajun Shrimp!

Grilled Cajun Shrimp with Chipotle Dipping Sauce and Coleslaw

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time:  15 minutes

Ingredients:

Shrimp:
41-50 count shrimp
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. paprika
dash of pepper
(Feel free to add more seasonings and/or larger portions if you wish – I typically do not measure)

Coleslaw:
Bagged coleslaw (I buy the bag of coleslaw by Fresh Express)
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of light mayo
2 tbsp. of honey
dash of pepper

Chipotle Sauce:
1 cup of light mayo
3 tsp. chipotle powder
1 tsp. paprika

Directions:

Heat a large skillet over oven on medium heat with your olive oil.  Place shrimp in skillet and add all of our seasonings.  Cook shrimp on each side for three minutes or until done.  Place on plate

Place coleslaw mix in a bowl and stir in ingredients – as much as you want.  You can add mayo or subtract mayo depending on how creamy you would like your coleslaw.

Mix mayo and spices for the chipotle sauce in small bowl.  Refrigerate before serving.

Enjoy!
