Cajun Dip

My cousin Sydney made this Cajun dip to accompany Rick’s crawfish boil while we remained in Louisiana. I asked her for the recipe within minutes of very first tasting it. It’s alluring and I have actually currently combined this dip with far more than seafood.

Sprinkled over hot roasted potatoes, as a dip for fresh veggies, and served with grilled chicken, it’s been tasty in every possible method and it’s now a staple in our fridge.

As you dip each bite into the sauce, you’ll instantly taste the abundant mix of spices, including the strong heat of cayenne pepper and the earthy depth of the Creole spices.

This sauce loads a punch, making it the ideal enhance to the natural sweet taste of boiled or steamed seafood like shrimp, crab, crawfish, and lobster.

A tip of lemon juice includes a revitalizing tang, boosting the seafood’s natural tastes. Worcestershire sauce offers an extra unique, intricate undertone.

Remaining dipping sauce? Oh, that will not be an issue. I generally double the recipe, to ensure that we’ll have additional sauce on hand. It’s an ideal match for Cajun steak bites, Cajun Brussels sprouts, or crispy Cajun cauliflower.

Drizzle some sauce over these breakfast tacos and get up your tastebuds delightfully very first thing in the early morning.

Cajun Chicken with Mushrooms is currently an addicting mix of spicy and alluring little bites. So, coupled with this sauce? I can’t get enough.

Attempt it with crispy oven roasted green beans or air fryer cauliflower. I wager it would rock with these zucchini corn fritters too!
