Cajun Skillet Shrimp

Fish and Seafood


3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cups shrimp, peeled and deveined, raw or cooked
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, sliced
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, chopped
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning


Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. If shrimp are raw, throw them in now, along with garlic, onion and peppers; stir-fry until the shrimp are pink and vegetables are just tender-crisp. If using cooked shrimp, sauté vegetables first, then add shrimp and cook just long enough to heat them through. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning over everything and stir it in. Serves 2.
