Cajun Shrimp Po’ Boy in Under 30 Minutes

Cajun Food, is one of my favorites because it is so flavorful. In fact, we love it so much that we have tried our hand at a few Cajun recipes like Crawfish Étouffée and this Shrimp Po’ Boy recipe, just to name a few. I like cooking with shrimp because it makes a quick meal, similar to chicken. It doesn’t take too long to thaw out or cook.

These Po’ Boys are a no brainer when I’m in a rush. I mean, you only need a handful of ingredients; shrimp, bread, lettuce and tomatoes. Plus, whatever seasoning you’d like, in this case the Cajun seasoning is what I used and suggest.

The first thing you need to do is cook the shrimp, this should take less than 20 minutes. Just add it to a pan with the Cajun seasoning. You can also add a bit of parsley – I love adding herbs to my food but this is completely optional.

While the shrimp cooks, you can cut lettuce and tomatoes to add to the Po’ Boys. You can also toast the bread or serve as is. I like our bread toasted, so I buttered and placed them in the over for a few minutes.

Once the shrimp is cooked all you have to do is add the desired amount to the bread with some lettuce and tomatoes. You can add some mayo, but what we use is a chipotle mayo because it adds a good flavor to all our “sandwiches.” That’s it!

Have you ever made Po’ Boys at home? If not, you probably should, it’s a super easy and quick meal. 😉

Buen Provecho,

Quick, Healthy, Tasty Broiled Salmon Recipe

Quick, Healthy, Tasty Broiled Salmon Recipe

Salmon is one of my favorite meals to prepare. I’ll admit that while in Georgia visiting my parents, I haven’t cooked much. I’m spoiled, I know. 🙂 So, I thought I could give my mom a break from the kitchen at least for a day and decided to make my salmon recipe for dinner.

First, I lined a baking sheet with foil paper, sprayed it with olive oil and set aside. Then I rinsed the salmon with cold water, seasoned with parsley, rosemary garlic and red pepper flakes.

I think we’re back to our normal schedule… So here’s another easy recipe! Taco Bowls with Old El Paso’s Taco Boats Flour Tortillas. I’ll be honest the first time I saw these, I thought’ “why not just use regular tortillas.” I bought them anyway because I had a crowd at home, and it seemed like the perfect quick meal to feed everyone. We liked them so much, that I have made a few variations since.

The one that I am sharing today is with ground beef. If you have visited my blog before, you know that I am all about delicious but quick meals. If this is your first time visiting, make sure to check out previous recipes. 😉 Now, on to the instructions…
