Red Lobster Cajun Shrimp

This copy cat recipe of Red Lobster Cajun Shrimp is totally finger-licking good!! And I mean it, literally! You all will be sitting around the dinner table licking those fingers of yours! It makes quite a bit of seasoning so you can have it for future dinners and trust me, once you try it, you will be making it in the future! The original recipe called for 3 tsp of cayenne pepper but it was just way too hot, even for me who loves the heat.


1/2 cup of butter
2 lb pealed and deveined shrimp

1 tsp cayenne
3 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp cumin
2 1/4 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp dry thyme
1 tsp dry oregano
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder

Start off by turning the oven to 350 degrees. Once ready, place a rimmed baking sheet with 1/2 cup of butter in it. When the butter is melted, you know that the sheet is ready for the shrimp. Place pealed shrimp on the baking sheet and sprinkle with the seasoning. Toss to coat. Bake turning halfway for 12 to 15 minutes, until shrimp is no longer pink. Keep unused seasoning in an air tight container for future use.
