Spaghetti with baked Cajun shrimp
Couple of days back,i was once again in the kitchen standing clueless about what i want to eat or cook for my family?All i knew was it has to be quick and simple to put together and of course likable.
That’s when i noticed the container full of basil growing.From a month back we had couple of big tomato cans left out.We decided to recycle it.What would be easier then turning them into little planter?So we drilled the holes.Kids painted it with chalk paint.Filled it with dirt and planted the seeds.They were responsible for making sure that it is watered regularly.So now we have parsley and basil thriving.Coriander and mint barely coming up.
Our menu : Baked Cajun shrimp,spaghetti tossed with sun dried tomatoes,basil and generous amount of olive oil.
1 lb medium size cleaned up shrimp,Cajun seasoning(it has salt),oil to drizzle ,lemon slices
Spread the shrimp in single layer in a baking dish.
Sprinkle it with Cajun seasoning.
Drizzle it with olive oil.
Add thin slices of lemon on top.
Bake at 350F for 20 mins until done.
While shrimp is in oven,cook the spaghetti.Once done,add basil leaves ,chopped sun dried tomatoes as much or as little as you desire.Salt to taste and generous drizzle of olive oil.Add feta or Parmesan cheese if you like.I forgot.
Enjoy it Al fresco !
