Cajun-Style Shrimp

The spices in this shrimp dish will remind you of Cajun kitchens and cuisine in New Orleans. The Cajun spices bring heat and warmth to these protein-packed shrimp, and the freshly-squeezed lemon juice cuts through with a bite of bitter sweet.  


Serve these shrimp over a bed of cauliflower rice and sprinkle with fresh cilantro and squeezed lemon juice.
