The dish, Cajun Spiced Garlic Butter Prawns is a delicious variation to the regular garlic butter Prawns! Cajun Spice mix is readily available in the markets and can be used to experiment with some more dishes too.

Originally I had purchased this spice mix to make Cajun Spiced Potatoes about which I had kept reading and have had them at a buffet spread. But the trial never happened!

It was once during last year’s lockdown that as I was preparing garlic butter prawns, I suddenly thought of adding this Cajun Spice to them to give it a twist and well, it was a hit with the family!

For some more such delicious dishes do take a look at the following recipes too….

  1. Prawn Cutlets
  2. Crispy Garlic Butter Prawns

An artist by nature, I love painting, travelling to different places and photographing nature, gardening, crochet, reading, etc. It's my nature to give my best to anything and everything I do. From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste.
