Garlic Shrimp with Shrimp Station Cajun

Garlic Shrimp Shrimp Station Cajun


  • 1pound shrimp large, shell-on (15/pound)
  • ½cup butter
  • 1head garlic peeled and chopped
  • ¼cup all-purpose flour, or rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon Shrimp Station Cajun
  • ¼cup canola oil
  • ½lemon


  • Prep the Shrimp
  • Clean and devein shrimp under cold running water, keeping the shells on.
  • Dry the deveined shrimp on paper towels.
  • Make the Garlic Butter Sauce
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over LOW heat.
  • Add chopped garlic to the melted butter and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour the garlic and butter into a small bowl and set aside.
  • Dust the Shrimp
  • Combine flour and Shrimp Station Cajun in a large resealable bag.
  • Add the prepared, dry shrimp to the bag, reseal, and shake gently to coat all the shrimp.
  • Tap each shrimp gently to remove excess flour mixture, and then rest on a wire rack.
  • Fry the Shrimp
  • Before frying the shrimp, remove any remaining garlic bits form the pan as best you can: they will burn if they are fried with the shrimp.
  • Heat half of the oil over MEDIUM-HIGH heat in the same skillet. Add a single layer of shrimp to the pan. Do not crowd.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until the flesh is white and the shells are pink.
  • Remove the cooked shrimp to a medium bowl. Add the rest of the oil to the pan and cook the rest of the shrimp.
  • Once all the shrimp is cooked and, in the bowl, squeeze half a lemon over the top of the shrimp, and drizzle in the prepared garlic butter sauce. Toss to coat all of the shrimp.
  • Season with salt to taste.
