Cajun Shrimp Recipe


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2– Oroweat Sandwich Thins  (separate the bottom from the tops) any variety you like. Whole Wheat, Honey Wheat, Flax & Fiber , or Multigrain which I used. (total 4 individual pizzas)
  • Fat Free Mozzarella Cheese  1/3 cup for each piece of sandwich thin rolls 
  • 24– medium size shrimp – thawed, peeled, & deveined ( 46 shrimp per individual pizza ) 
  • 1 tbsp – Fresh Minced Garlic  
  • 1– small Yellow Onion cut into thin round pieces ( 46 pieces for each pizza) 
  • 1/2– Green Bell Pepper – sliced thin into 16 long pieces (divide and place 4 slices on each pizza) 
  • 2 tsp. – Olive Oil
  • 1/2– Red Bell Pepper – sliced thin into 16 long pieces (divide and place 4 slices on each pizza) 
  • 1 tbsp diced fresh Curly Parsley 
  • 1012 Cherry Tomatoes cut in half and smashed (use potato masher)
  • 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning (I used Louisiana Cajun Seasoning) 
  • Canola Spray Oil 
  • cookie sheet lined with parchment paper 
  • optional diced parsley for garnishing 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven on broil – low heat. 
  2. Put shrimp in medium bowl and toss with cajun seasoning and parsely. Place in fridge until needed.
  3. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Place tomatoes into a medium bowl and smash using a potato masher. Set aside until needed.
  4. Separate the bottoms and the tops from the sandwich thins and place upside down onto the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  
  5. Place minced garlic into a small bowl with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Mix together well.
  6. Brush each sandwich thins with the garlic & olive oil mixture. Use a pastry brush. Set aside.
  7. Spray a pan with canola cooking spray.
  8. Remove the shrimp from the refrigerator. Cook in the pan on medium heat until they turn pink and the tails curl, about 3-4 minutes. Make sure to flip the shrimp over at least once during the cooking time. When cooked remove from heat. 
  9. Grab the cookie sheet with the sandwich thins and place on a flat surface. Next, using a fork spread a little bit of the tomatoes onto each. Place the shrimp on top of the tomatoes, then the onions, bell peppers and cheese. Do this for each of the individual pizzas. 
  10. Place the pizzas into the preheated oven on low broil until the cheese melts (3-5 minutes depending on your oven).
  11. Using oven mitts remove cookie sheet from the oven and let cool. Enjoy! 

Notes

You can also use part-skim mozzarella cheese but, you will have to adjust your points.
