Cajun Cocoanut Shrimp

My best friend Katie has been bugging me ever since I first created this blog to put this recipe up. This is one of my favorite recipes. It is easy to make and tastes delicious.

This recipe reminds me a lot of the cajan shrimp I had on vacation in Tampa Bay, FL. My mom, sister and I had a girls week where all we did was drink margaritas, soak up the sun and eat great food! One of the best days there was when we visited the Tiki Bar that had live music, fresh food and

a large beach.

Steamed Peppers

Cajun Cocoanut Shrimp

  • 2 red/yellow peppers
  • about 1 Tbs cocoanut oil
  • 1 bag (12 oz) raw shrimp-unfrozen and de-shelled/veined
  • 1 tsp Cajun Seasoning
  • Salt (optional)

Cut up peppers and steam them until a fork can easily pierce. While peppers

are steaming, add cocoanut oil to frying pan. Allow oil to melt (about 1 minute) and then add the shrimp and cajun seasoning. Cook shrimp for 10 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink in color. Add shrimp on top of peppers and salt to taste. I do not add any salt.
