Cajun Shrimp & Rice Bowl |


So here is an amazing recipe that is featured in one of our meal plans!  This recipe can be made into a delicious meal by adding a salad with a delicious new salad dressing.  

This one pot shrimp dish is spicy with a bit of a kick and has so much flavor that you will be going back for seconds for sure! 

I have also included instructions about soaking your rice for better digestion.  This is an optional step that you can read about in my post:  Are Soaking Grains & Legumes Necessary & How To Properly Soak & Prepare Them .  

If you choose to soak your rice, let me know how you feel afterwards.  I often feel fuller quicker with soaked grains.

Cajun Shrimp & Rice Bowl ~ Organic Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup uncooked organic jasmine rice (I like Lundberg Brand because it is verified as a non GMO)
  • 1¼ pound medium wild caught shrimp peeled, deveined and tails and heads removed.
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp cajun seasoning blend (salt free)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp liquid aminos (gluten free choice) or soy sauce
  • ⅛-1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper (depending on how hot you like it)
  • parmesan cheese to garnish
Soaking Rice
  1. In the morning add 1 cup of jasmine rice to 1½ cup water and 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Allow to sit for 8 hours. When it is time to cook, add 1 tbsp butter and 1 tsp salt to the pan and follow the cooking instructions given for the jasmine rice. Note, if using regular rice then replace the 1½ cup water with 2 cups water.
Cooking Instructions For Shrimp
  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. Start cooking the rice as directed.
  3. In the meantime, mix together olive oil, cajun seasoning blend, lemon juice, parsley, liquid aminos and the cayenne pepper.
  4. Place the shrimp in a shallow baking dish.
  5. Pour sauce over shrimp and place in the oven when the rice only has 10 minutes remaining to cook.
  6. Cook shrimp until they turn slightly pink and are done, about 8-10 minutes.
  7. Pour shrimp and sauce over the rice and stir.
  8. Top with parmesan cheese and serve.
