For the Creamy Cajun Sauce:

For the shrimp:


  • Combine sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth. Set aside.
    Creamy cajun sauce
  • Heat a large skillet to medium heat, add butter and garlic. When butter is hot and melted, add shrimp. Sprinkle Creole seasoning over the shrimp. It can be a little spicy so only sprinkle to your personal taste. When shrimp is pink all the way through, remove it from heat. Do not overcook.
