Outrageous Cajun Shrimp Pasta with a spicy and rich cream sauce is a quick and easy dinner recipe with just the right amount of kick! #shrimppasta #creamy #cajun #easy #recipes #spicy

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 8 ounces penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 pound raw shrimp deveined, cleaned, tail removed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning *see note below
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. First, add salt to pot of water and bring to a boil. Cook pasta to al dente doneness. Before draining, scoop out at least 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Drain pasta and set aside.
  2. Then, while the pasta is cooking, cook the shrimp and sauce. Combine shrimp with cajun seasoning and olive oil in bowl. Toss to combine.
  3. Heat large skillet over medium high heat. Add butter and melt. Add shrimp in a single layer and cook until golden brown on each side, turning only once. You may have to cook shrimp in two batches to allow enough room. Once done cooking, transfer cooked shrimp to a clean plate and reduce heat to medium low.
  4. Add heavy cream to pan and scrape bottoms to release any food that is stuck to the bottom. Allow cream to bubble. Reduce heat to low and stir in parmesan cheese to melt. Add cooked pasta and shrimp and stir to coat. If sauce needs to be thinned, add pasta water, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.

NOTES: I've had a few viewers comment that this recipe turned out too salty. If you use my homemade cajun seasoning (link below), then it will turn out perfectly delicious. If you use a store bought cajun seasoning blend, which most likely contains much more salt than I use in my blend, you should start with a small amount, taste, and continue to add to your liking.
