Cajun shrimp alfredo

  • Start cooking pasta at the same time as starting the sauce. 
  • Bring a pot of water to boil and salt the water. Salt it generously so that pasta gets seasoned as it cooks.
  • Add pasta and cook according to the package suggested time. Don’t overcook the pasta because it will continue to cook while coated in hot Alfredo sauce. 
  • Once pasta is done, strain it and add it back to the pot.
  • Season your shrimp with some Cajun seasoning, cracked black pepper & salt
  • Into a large pan, add some olive oil and toss your prawns in and cook until pink (3-5 mins)
  • In a medium, heavy bottom sauce pot, melt butter over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add fresh garlic. Cook garlic until it’s fragrant and sprinkle flour over it. Stir until flour is all mixed with butter and slowly pour in heavy cream while constantly stirring. 
  • Gently stir the mixture together and let it heat through. Once heavy cream is hot, add in Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. Lower heat to medium-low and gently stir until grated cheese melts and incorporates.
  • Keep cooking over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • Once sauce is ready mix it with cooked pasta. (Reserve a little bit of sauce to drizzle over shrimp.)
