Hubby Meals: Cajun Curry Shrimp

img_8676Solomon and I are seafood lovers. We’ve enjoyed fusion food as well. So I chose to mix the flavors of the Southern/South-West and the Middle/Far East with a dinner of Cajun Curry Shrimp with Jasmine rice and roasted Jalapenos. Talk about fusion, right? It was absolutely delicious! Not only is this meal very easy to make, it takes less than 30 minutes from prep to serve. My husband really enjoyed this meal. Just look at his face! He eats a lot, so I think this recipe could serve up to 4 people. It all depends on what you serve with it and how hungry your guests or family are.


  1. 1 Bag of Jumbo Shrimp (26-32 count)
  2. Basmati Rice
  3. Red Kidney Beans
  4. Cajun Seasoning

  7. Curry Powder
  8. Coriander

  10. Minced Garlic
  11. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  12. Butter
  13. Sea Salt and Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
