Cajun Shrimp with Peas and Rice



– about 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, and uncooked

– 1/2 -1cup long white rice

– water, for boiling rice

– 6-8 oz. peas

– olive oil and butter

– about 2-3 tbsp. chopped garlic


1) Bring a pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add rice and cook about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. 2) In a saucepan, heat butter and oil. Chop the garlic, then add it and the shrimp to the pan and saute. Add peas and cajun. 3) Once the rice is finished cooking, add it to the pan and continue stirring and sauteing for approximately 3 more minutes. When your done, cool slightly and serve. I usually like to add a little more cajun to mine because I like a little more spice.If you do add extra, I recommend about 1/2 – 1 teaspoon extra, or just a couple shakings of seasoning. Enjoy your meal!
