I had a craving for some Cajun spiced shrimp last weekend, which quickly evolved into this tasty seafood dish. The sweet, tender shrimp, buttery scallops, and mild, flaky cod picked up all the delicious spices of the smoky Cajun seasonings, and the crisp sweetness of the corn along with the unique flavor and texture of the okra added a bright, crunchy finish.
I loved this meal so much, I was thankful there were leftovers for lunch the next day!
This recipe evolved out of my experimentation with Vietnamese cooking when I made Pho a few weeks ago. I especially liked the spicy/acidic/sweet flavor profile in the seasonings and wanted to try it again. So I decided to use it on some chicken wings and they didn’t disappoint. (Having Sriracha on the list of ingredients didn’t hurt either!) I still got the heat I was looking for and the sweetness from the brown sugar, and the acidity from the fresh lime made them positively addicting. Before we knew it, the wings were gone, and the platter was empty!
Looking for something hot and steamy to heat up your Valentine’s Day? How about tender shrimp dusted in Creole seasonings, spicy pan-seared Andouille sausage and sliced fiery jalapeno?
Still not enough heat for you? Add a generous helping of blazing Sriracha and Monterey Jack infused grits to your plate, and get ready to feel the love…and the burn!
