Cajun Boiled Shrimps Recipe

Cajun Boiled Shrimps Recipe

I have been a fan of Bucket Shrimps’ Cajun Boiled Shrimps. Me and my husband have been eating there frequently and we usually order 1 bucket of shrimps and 2 buckets of rice! Since I loved it so much, I tried making cajun boiled shrimps at home and I searched for cajun powder in the supermarket. Good thing I found McCormick Cajun powder in Rustans and in Ayala. When I tried it, it almost smells the same as the one used in Bucket Shrimps. So far this is the only cajun powder brand I found here in Cebu. 🙁

Hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I did. And I find it better eating these at home as I tend to get messy eating with shrimps. And I can eat as many cups of rice I want without thinking about the bill! 🙂
