Quick Creole Shrimp

This is a recipe I adapted to be freezer-friendly. If you want to make it tonight, simply have your shrimp thawed. It is pretty spicy, but to cut down on the spice do not cook in the juices. My kids loved it!

1 lb frozen uncooked cleaned large shrimp
1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup Italian dressing
2 cloves garlic, minced (~2 tsp)
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (for after you cook)

Combine shrimp, dressing, seasoning, and garlic in a freezer bag. Remove the air, seal, and freeze.

To Cook: Thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add ~1 tbsp olive oil and butter. Add shrimp and cook 2-3 minutes until done. Top with parsley, if desired.

The shrimp had a great flavor! I cooked it in the sauce, so it was too spicy for the kids, but great with the sauce over rice. Will definitely make again!

I made this with chicken rather than shrimp and it tasted great. I like that it was spicy enough to know it was there but not too spicy.
