A Cajun shrimp recipe cooked in a cast iron skillet and served with crusted French bread. I have made this twice for my wife and I, and we both love it. Try a nice Chardonnay with the shrimp to top off the meal.

  • Mix shrimp and butter mixture together in a cast iron skillet. Place in the refrigerator and allow to set for about 20 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove the skillet from the refrigerator.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Place the French bread into the skillet with the shrimp and continue to cook until shrimp are bright pink and bread is slightly brown on top, about 10 minutes more. Serve in the cast iron skillet and use the bread to dip up the sauce.

Cook's Note:

Any oven-safe baking dish could be substituted for the cast iron skillet.

I made it exactly as written except I used canola oil instead of olive oil. It was superb! I warmed the Bread separately but used it to soak up the juice while eating! Yummmy yum yum yum!! Will definitely make again! Read More
