Cajun Shrimp Linguine

Good morning bloggers,

This morning I made this tasty Cajun Shrimp Linguine, and thought to myself what a better thing to do than share it with all of you! This is pretty simple and will turn out amazing, people will definitely be coming back for seconds.

Ingredients (serves 2 people):

  • 1 lb Shrimp
  • 8 ounces of Linguine noodles
  • 2 1/2 tbs of Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 cup of Heavy Cream  (or Whipping Cream)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup of tomatoes
  • 1 cup of onions
  • 2 tsp of garlic powder (I substituted this with garlic onion seasoning, and used about 3/4 of onions )
  • 1 1/2 tbs of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbs of butter
  • 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup of another cheese of your choice (I recommend cheddar & more parmesan is an option)

After getting all the ingredients together please, prepare by cleaning the shrimp, dicing the tomatoes and onions. Don’t worry theres no more heavy duty cutting after this is done. IMG_2515
