Easy Southern cooking at its best!
My husband received a new grill for his birthday and every night since we have been grilling out for every meal possible. I can’t complain because every dish has been amazing and flavorful, while learning new favorites to save to the recipe binder for years to come.
These cajun shrimp and sausage skewers are definitely a keeper. It’s so easy to make and even easier to clean up. The perfect attraction to any BBQ or party this Summer.
What you will need
6-12 wooden or metal skewers
2 ears of corn
6 small potatoes, halved
24 large shrimp in the shell (about 1 lb)
1 lb sausage
2 tablespoons of Cajun Seasoning
To make your own Cajun Seasoning …
3 tablespoons granulated garlic
3 tablespoons granulated onion
3 tablespoons of sweet paprika
1 tablespoon of smoked paprika
4 teaspoons of dried thyme
4 teaspoons of dried oregano
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Start by boiling waiter in a large sauce pan and cook corn and potatoes for 5 min. Drain and immerse in cold water to halt the cooking.
Next snip open the shell along each shrimp with kitchen scissors. Cut a shallow groove along the length of the vein and lift out.
Thread the shrimp, vegetables and sliced sausages on to each skewer. Place on tray and sprinkle evenly with cajun seasoning. Let sit while you prepare the grill.
Prepare your grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Place skewers directly over the fire and cook turning once until the shrimp turn a creamy white and potatoes are tender. About 3-5 min. on each side.
Slide pieces off the skewer on to a platter and enjoy immediately!
