Baked Honey Cajun Shrimp

Baked Honey Cajun Shrimp are a quick and easy dinner that takes just 10 minutes to cook. The balance of sweet and spicy is pure perfection. Tastes great served over rice with steamed broccoli or a salad.

To make this amazingly easy and delicious meal, shrimp are briefly marinated in a mixture of honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, Cajun seasoning, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic, olive oil, and butter. Then they are baked for about 10 minutes.

This recipe can easily be scaled up or down. I find that 1.5 pounds of shrimp is enough for 4 people to have a generous amount.

These Baked Honey Cajun Shrimp also make an awesome appetizer.
This baked honey cajun shrimp recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a larger crowd. It’s so simple to put together and tastes amazing. Serves 4 for Dinner or 8 as an appetizer, (or 1 pregnant lady and her 6’4″ husband ;).

The shrimp taste wonderful over mashed potatoes, pasta or white rice. It’s not fiery hot by any means but if you want it to be a little more kid-friendly, you might consider cutting the cajun seasoning in half.
