Cajun Shrimps

Cajun Shrimps

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.
