Cajun Boiled Shrimp Recipe

If you are truly a Mermaid like myself, you LOVE seafood. Seafood is my absolute favorite, specifically crustaceans. Here I have a delicious recipe, which is now a fan favorite for dinner: Cajun Boiled Shrimp. Anywhere I go when traveling I always want to find a seafood spot that sells boiled shrimp, crab legs, clams, you name it! The flavor I am looking for is very particular, the smell of the cajun and the garlic has to make me salivate before even eating it. Squeeze some limón and muah! Perfection. This meal takes less than an hour to make and you and your family will LOVE it.
