Many people believe Cajun shrimp to be spicy hot. This is not always true.
Cajun cooking is created by the blend of flavors or seasonings used in recipes.
The most popular blend includes bell peppers, celery and onion. You can add “hot” peppers or spices to the blend to make the food spicy hot but many recipes do not do this. They are just flavorful with many seasonings.
Cajun cooking was derived from a group of settlers in Louisiana, called the Acadians. The Acadians had to live off the land and being near the Gulf Coast and many marshes this typically included the use of crawfish, oysters, fish and shrimp in their cooking.
Popular variations of Cajun of cooking include Gumbo, Jambalaya and a Crawfish Boil. Creole is also often associated with Cajun Cooking. Gumbo a spicy stew typically related to Louisiana. It mainly consists of rice and broth along with the flavors or seasonings typical of Cajun cuisine. Then shrimp, or other ingredients are added to the stew. Jambalaya is a combination of cooked rice and a variety of other ingredients. It may include tomatoes, onion, green pepper, meat, poultry, and/or shellfish such as shrimp. A Crawfish boil is typically done by boiling crawfish, potatoes, onions and corn with seasonings such as lemons, bay leaves, mustard seeds, cayenne pepper and other spices. Shrimp is often used in conjunction with the crawfish or as a substitute.
