🥘 Cajun Shrimp Stir Fry
(makes 4-5 servings)
3 slices uncured bacon
1 stick (½-cup) (113 g) grass-fed butter
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1½ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp thyme
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp Old Bay or other crab boil seasoning
1 tsp Tabasco or other hot sauce
1½ lb (680 g) shrimp (31-40 size works best)
½ cup (125 ml) water
Cook 3 slices of bacon in a frying pan until cooked but not crispy. Remove from the pan and place on a paper towel.
Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC).
Add all the ingredients except shrimp to the bacon grease in the pan, simmer for about 5 minutes.
While that’s simmering, place the shrimp in an open baking dish and set aside. Chop the bacon and stir into the shrimp.
When butter is melted and seasonings have combined, pour the liquid over the shrimp and stir to coat. Add water if necessary to fully coat the shrimp. Bake uncovered for about 15 minutes.
