Cajun Week Day 1
Hello everyone, great things are happening this week.
Creole Contessa and Feed Your Soul Too are both celebrating Cajun Week. For the next seven days, we will be sharing on both our sites, wonderful southern dishes.
Creole Fried Corn is a southern staple.
Today I decided to make one of my favorite dishes, Fried Corn with Shrimp. This is one of the simplest, but flavorful dishes around. I serve this dish warm or cold.
Take bell pepper, onion, celery, and a little garlic. Saute the veggies in a little butter and olive oil. Add corn and saute for about 10 minutes and add shrimp and cook a few minutes more. Everything is seasoned well, of course, and that’s it.
This dish takes less than thirty minutes, and believe me, you will be hooked, once you try it!
Look at what’s cooking over at Feed Your Soul Too! My first dish is Cajun pasta with Chicken Andouille sausage and Cajun grilled chicken. I don’t know if they call it Rattlesnake where you come from, but they call it that sometimes up north… To see more from Feed Your Soul Too, click the link…
