Cajun Shrimp


3 green onions, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 lbs medium shrimp, shelled with tails intact, deveined
lemon wedges (optional)


Combine the onions, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, salt, black pepper, and cayenne peper in a 2-quart glass dish.  Stir in the oil.  Add the shrimp and turn to coat.  Cover and refrigerate at least 15 minutes. Thread the shrimp onto metal or wooden skewers (if using woodend skewers, soak them in hot water for 30 minutes before use to prevent burning).  Grill the shrimp over medium hot coals about 2 minutes per side until opaque.  Serve immediately with lemon wedges. A quick variation is to use a bottled zesty cocktail sauce mixed with the olive oil as a marinade.  Stir-fry shrimp in a skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray until the shrimp are opaque, just a couple of minutes.

Makes 4 Servings.
