Blackened shrimp is a quick weeknight meal we love to chow down anytime we want shrimp or something quick. Blackened shrimp can be served with grit, mashed potatoes, as a taco, rice, couscous, salad and many more. If you want a taste of Cajun then this is for you.

If you need to coat the skillet/pan just drizzle small oil to coat it.
