Cajun Corn On The Cob (Boiled, Baked, or On The Grill)

Roasted Cajun corn on the cob is easy to make in the comfort of your home. Perfectly baked (or boiled, grilled) corn is dipped in a creamy-cajun-mayo sauce, sprinkled with salty crumbled cheese, and is the best choice for large summer parties. 

Ingredients :

  • 4 ears of corn husked
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoon mayonnaise i used vegan mayo
  • ⅓ cup sour cream or Mexican crema
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cajun spice
  • 1 ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped
  • ½ cup feta or cotija crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle or chili powder optional

Instructions :

  1. Oil and spices. In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, half of the cajun spice, half of the paprika spice, garlic and onion powder, salt, pepper to taste.
  2. It is fine if you have extra oil-spices mixture left, you can brush the corn later, right before brushing with the mayo sauce.Place each cob on a piece of foil. Brush each corn generously with the mixture. Wrap in foil.
  3. Transfer the corn to the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 425 F. If you like the corn to be softer, remove it from the oven after 30 minutes, brush it with more oil-spice mixture and bake another 20-25 minutes.
  4. While cajun corn on the cob is baking, prepare the mayo sauce. In a medium bowl, mix mayo, sour cream, leftover cajun and paprika, lime juice (or squeeze it later directly on the corn as needed), salt, and pepper to taste.
  5. Take the corn out from the oven, let cool slightly and brush with leftover oil mixture (optional) and finally mayo mix all over the corn. (If you want to get the corn slightly charred without using a grill, a grill pan would be a great option here. Transfer the baked corn directly to a lightly greased grill pan and let all the sides grilled until the desired result, don't overcook it though!).
  6. Top with crumbled feta or cotija cheese, chopped cilantro, cajun spice. Serve warm
  7. Enjoy !!

This Cajun shrimp scampi is so quick and easy you can make it any weeknight. But it is so fancy and tasty you just might want to save it for special occasions!

This is delicious! Followed the steps and I’m very pleased! Used fresh parsley too. For all the ingrediants without measurements, start small and take it from there. This only required a pinch of flour to thicken up while on the heat, for example. I like my food spicy so I did add half a scotch bonnet pepper during the final boil phase as I whisked it, took it out when I was done and boom, the Jamaican in me was happy lol. Even without the parm, I was enjoying my meal. Didn’t remember to add it until I was half done my plate lol

Cajun Fried Shrimp

Crunchy Cajun Shrimp are crunchy, spicy, sour, and full of flavor. Simple seasoning that includes Cajun seasoning, a touch of lemon flavor, and served with Cajun sauce. Perfect for an easy appetizer or a quick dinner!

Hey man. This is very good.  I promise you will not be disappointed with this delicious shrimp. We don't make a lot of fried foods in our house, and this was a special treat!

I love fried shrimp. It's one of my favorites that I order, but it's also the worst when you get it, and you can tell it got into the fryer from the freezer. The hand-made, spiced, extremely crunchy, undercooked, and excellent dipping sauce are all essential when it comes to fried shrimp. 

Ingredients : 

Crunchy shrimp

° 12 large raw prawns, peeled but tails remaining

° Half a cup of vegetable oil

° All-purpose cup of flour

° ½ teaspoon fresh lemon peel

° Half a teaspoon of salt

° 1 1/2 teaspoons of Cajun spice

° 1 large egg

° 1 tablespoon of milk

° 1 cup panko bread crumbs

For Cajun Sauce

° Half a cup of mayonnaise

° 2 tablespoons of sour cream

° 1 tablespoon ketchup

° 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

Instructions :


Cajun sauce

  1. Put mayonnaise, sour cream, ketchup, and Cajun seasoning in a bowl. Whisk together and set aside while preparing the shrimp.

Cajun Crunchy Shrimp

  1. Put the flour, salt, lemon zest and Cajun seasoning in a bowl. Stir with a fork to mix it evenly. Next, break an egg into a bowl, add milk, and beat with a fork. Next, place the panko on a plate. Set up the stations in a line that starts with flour, then eggs, then panko. When finished, place a clean plate at the end of the shrimp assembly line.
  2. With your left hand we nudge shrimp in flour. Transfer it to your right hand and dip in eggs, then panko. Press the panko in the shrimp until it is evenly covered. Put the shrimp on a clean plate ; repeat with rest shrimp. Keeping one hand dry will help reduce stickiness and make the rusk baking process more efficient.
  3. Adding oil to a emit iron skillet. You need there to be for an inch of oil on bottom. If you are using a smaller or larger skillet, adjust the amount accordingly. Heat oven with oil on heat. The oil will sizzle if you sprinkling some breadcrumbs into it when it's ready. Don't add shrimp too soon.
  4. Place the shrimp in the pan using tongs. Try to prevent them from touching so the pan is not too crowded and the shrimp can cook evenly.
  5. Shrimp cooked 90 seconds per side. Gently turn the shrimp over, but if the bread starts with the rusk, allow more time. The shrimp will not stick to one until the bread is cooked.
  6. Take the shrimp out of the pan and place it on a plate lined with a paper towel. Serve on the spot with Cajun sauce.

Enjoy !
