Spicy Cajun Shrimp

A super-fast weeknight dinner. This spicy shrimp comes together in about 15 minutes.

Spicy Cajun Shrimp
Serves 4

1lb shrimp, thawed
3 Tablespoons butter

3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon  cayenne 
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoon oregano 
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a large sauté pan. Add the shrimp and cook until pink. 

Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about one minute. Add in the spices and stir to coat the shrimp.

In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch and chicken broth. Pour into the pan and stir until the broth has thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with grits, mashed cauliflower as shown above, or with a loaf of crusty bread to soak up that sauce!
