Grilled Creole and Lime Shrimp

December 29, 2009

This is my husband’s favorite. I made it by accident one day and hoped he would like it. His response, “Oh my…this is the best shrimp I have ever tasted!” The taste alone makes you only want shrimp prepared this way.

1 lb. large shrimp (peeled, and deveined)

1 lime

2 tbsp. Tony Chachare’s Cajun Creole Seasoning (can be found at Publix and Walmart Market

Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

place)

1 tsp olive oil (optional)

After you have cleaned the shrimp, toss in the Creole seasoning. It can be best on a grill, but you can also fry on med-hi in a pan with a little bit of oil olive oil. Cook about 2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are solid in color. Squeeze lime juice over the whole dish. NOTE: Do not add the lime with the seasoning before cooking. This will cause the shrimp to start cooking itself due to the acidity. Also when the lime is added with the seasoning, it does not allow the creole seasoning to adhere.  Enjoy this hot, spicy, and well-rounded flavor that are presented in this dish!
