Cajun Shrimp Scampi is a very delicious and quick recipe. That’s tasty, you will never avoid this recipe, it’s suitable for all occasions.
This is delicious! Followed the steps and I’m very pleased! Used fresh parsley too. For all the ingredients without measurements, start small and take it from there. This only required a pinch of flour to thicken up while on the heat, for example. I like my food spicy so I did add half a scotch bonnet pepper during the final boil phase as I whisked it, took it out when I was done and boom, the Jamaican in me was happy lol. Even without the parm, I was enjoying my meal. Didn’t remember to add it until I was half done my plate lol
It is a hot one, but wonderful, delicious, and irresistible! If you are weak of tongue, then divide the amounts of peppers in half. Better to add more than spoil your creation! Bay scallops are recommended, you can use the larger sea scallops if they are cut in half. This dish can also be placed in a casserole dish and placed under the broiler until the top will be golden and brown!
Lots of people have observed that this recipe is too peppery. Most people, however, love the cohesion of the sauce. I think I have found a good balance.
This recipe is Very Special! I used 2 cups of half-&-half and 2 cups (0.47 l) of milk. I made it with 1lb (ca. 454 g) scallops and 0.5lb (ca. 227 g) shrimps, and I didn’t use much more of other spice (pepper) but with the addition of 1/2tsp of Cajun spice.
