Cajun Shrimp Guacamole Dip – Tips and Tricks
10 minutes! I swear that’s all it takes to make perfectly cooked spicy Cajun shrimp. Simply toss peeled and deveined shrimp with olive oil and a Cajun spice mix.
Pour the shrimp into a single layer in a skillet. Cook for about 3 minutes and then flip the shrimp to the other side and cook for about 3-4 minutes more. It’s done when the shrimp turns pink on the outside and the inside turns white.
I used this method for Spicy Shrimp and Cauliflower Grits and I rarely make it any other way now!
I documented this simple tutorial for fresh guacamole dip over 3 years ago. It’s one of my very first and most popular posts! Since I make guacamole at least
once 2-3 times a month, I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy it.
Of course, it’s a must on all things Tex-Mex. Guacamole Stuffed Mushrooms are also very tasty!
But, if you’re looking for a low-carb way to enjoy this healthy dip, then give Cajun Shrimp Guacamole Dip a try. There will be no judgment here if you just want to call it dinner!
