In bayou country, seafood is a staple of the table. Shrimp takes to our Smoky Cajun seasoning blend like a fish to water, basking in a rustic Southern-inspired mix of smoked paprika with mustardy, savoury and herby flavours. Serve these pink pan-cooked specimens alongside a superb slaw composed of blanched string beans, shredded cabbage and scallions—and give it a creamy dressing cheery with champagne vinegar. Cue up a cashew garnish for some crunch.
