Cajun Shrimps

Cajun Shrimp

We are glad to bring a taste of New Orleans to your home with this Cajun blend and smoky chili for shrimp or fish fillet. For the side, we included amchoor powder for an exotic touch. It's made from dried green mangoes and adds a fruity flavor to the coleslaw to pair with the citrus flavor in the red bell pepper.

My daughter gave me a subscription as a Christmas present while our families were quarantining together. It was so much fun! It introduced us to several cuisines that were totally new to us. The recipes were easy to follow and the spices were transformative - fresh and pungent and delicious.
