Cajun Shrimp

Again this looks like a wonderful recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. I have been finding such great things from them this year. We are having a birthday party for two of my boys this up coming weekend and I think I will be making this.

1 pound fresh or frozen large shrimp in shells
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon bottled minced garlic (1 clove)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise, tomato paste, lemon juice, and garlic. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

2. Brush both sides of each shrimp with melted butter. Sprinkle both sides of each shrimp with Cajun seasoning. Place on the unheated rack of a broiler pan.

3. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 2 minutes. Turn shrimp; broil for 1 to 2 minutes more or until shrimp are opaque. Serve shrimp with mayonnaise mixture. Makes 8 appetizer servings.

I'm not going to say I love shrimp because lately every food I enjoy becomes a forbidden food. So I'll just say 'looks good' :)
