This Spicy Cajun Baked Shrimp Recipe is low carb, easy to make and can be used in so many dishes, from salads to stir fry.  This is definitely a dish you need to add to your menu plan!


Units Scale
  • 1.5 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning – homemade or your favorite store bought
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar (optional- we’re off sugar so I left the sugar out)
  • bit of fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
  • Bamboo skewers (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Soak bamboo skewers in water for a few minutes if using.
  3. Line baking sheet with foil and lightly coat foil with oil.
  4. Mix together cajun spices and sugar.
  5. Toss shrimp with the olive oil and place on skewer or spread on the lightly oiled  baking sheet.
  6. Sprinkle shrimp with seasoning (both sides.)
  7. Bake until the shrimp curl up and turn pink, about 10-15 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!


Recipe note:  (Our favorite cajun seasoning is the Tony Chachere’s seasoning, and it’s pretty spicy.  I usually cut the Tony C seasoning with a little seasoned salt, paprika and cumin.  Cajun seasoning is pretty easy- you could just make your own and control the salt and heat.)
