This is a good recipe. By good, I mean easy enough for a weeknight, fun enough for a weekend, and definitely a conversation piece for entertaining friends for a dinner meal.
After all- even the pickiest of picky loves a good stuffed potato, right? I think so.
A good stuffed potato starts with the protein. Whether it be beef, chicken, beans, or veggies, and in this case- seafood.
Start with fresh- or frozen, but thawed, tails removed. Saute them up in a hot skillet coated with cooking spray.
Choose your veg. Classic Cajun includes a trifecta of onion, bell pepper, and celery. I like red over the green, so I chose to use the sweet red bell. You can choose any pepper you please.
Get ready for an intoxicating fragrance to consume your kitchen. Garlic is amazing- duh. plus the addition of a few others- your belly will be on fire with hunger for a bite.
Cream style corn gives a buttery reminiscent flavor of Cajun Yumminess. Plus, butter and potatoes go together like..
..peas and carrots..
..mac’n cheese and BBQ sauce..
..yes.. I mean what I said. It is so delicious.. don’t hate.
Next comes a slew of the remaining ingredients. It ends up looking like a big heap of yellow slop.
Good slop, though.
Add in your shrimpies.. or whatever protein you choose.
Fill your potatoes.
Ready.. Set.. Go for the BROIL (Set to HI, please)
You are so close to getting a bite to eat.
I served mine on a bed of grees with a side of steamed asparagus.
It is quite a belly warmer.. super hearty and satisfying.
My idea of serious comfort food.
