Shrimp Skewers make a delicious, quick-fix lunch or supper that I absolutely love. And boy, do I have a scrumptious twist on this classic for ya.

Spicy Cajun Shrimp Skewer

Yesterday, I shared my Cajun Spice Mix recipe and today I have one of my new favorite ways to use it! This Spicy Cajun Shrimp Skewer. Oh my goodness! So much flavor and so dad gum simple to make! It’s truly a keeper recipe if I’ve ever seen one!

These skewers are perfect on a bed of baby spinach for a quick salad or even with a side of smashed potatoes if you need a heartier meal.

They are ready in just a few minutes, making them a definite quick-fix supper idea that is waistline friendly.

There are usually about 25-30 large shrimp per pound, so I generally use about five large shrimp per skewer for about eight skewers. Perfect for a supper for four or lunch portions for eight. It also makes a beautiful appetizer if you’d like to use the smaller skewers with just one or two shrimp.

Can you tell how much I’m in love with these?

Here’s how I make my Spicy Cajun Shrimp Skewers.
