Spicy Cajun Shrimp Soup


Fall Sundays are the best time for me to be creative in my kitchen and treat my family with those wonderful recipes.  Tonight, we started our dinner with a simple and delicious Spicy Cajun Shrimp Soup.  Shrimp makes everything better, and this soup was the highlight of our Sunday.  As a shrimp-lover, I may be biased, but this recipe is super delicious and wish you could taste it.  Bon Appetit!

  1. That is one delicious bowl of soup! I really love the Fall and all these fantastic recipes I am finding for soup. I am adding this to our menu plan for next week. Another soon to be family favorite for sure!

  2. Oh my this looks delicious! I’ll have to try it when we get home from vacation since my moms is severely allergic to shellfish! And how appropriate to read this Cajun recipe as I’m driving through the Louisiana swamps on my way to Florida!

  3. Cajun seasoning, creamed corn and shrimp, Yum! Its not possible to go wrong with those ingredients in the base for your spicy cajun shrimp soup 😉

  4. OOOOO GIRL! I am a sucker for anything with cajun seasoning or cajun inspired. By far one of my favorite kinds of food out there!
