This cajun shrimp and rice bowl is full of flavor!


  • 1 cup uncooked organic jasmine rice (I like Lundberg Brand because it is verified as a non GMO)
  • 1 1/4 pound medium wild caught shrimp peeled, deveined and tails and heads removed.
  • 1/3 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
  • 1/81/4 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 1 1/2 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 1 1/2 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.
