Cajun Shrimp Casserole

 

Here in Louisiana, we love seafood and one of our favorite seafood staples is shrimp. Just like out of a scene from Forrest Gump, we like our shrimp fried, boiled, barbecued, and any way in between. However, sometimes life gets so busy that cooking an elaborate meal becomes difficult. Casseroles are a great way to make a large amount of food, with minimal cleanup and of course: a delicious taste.

Here at Slap Ya Mama, our seasonings can add the flavor you desire to any dish. This hearty Cajun dinner recipe is filled with shrimp, cheese, rice and its cajun flair with okra, bell peppers and Slap Ya Mama seasoning.
