Mushroom and Shrimp Cajun Black Beans and Rice was an inspiration that came to me right after I created my DIY Cajun Spice. Since then, I have found endless options for this flavorful
It’s always an adventure trying to create a new recipe idea limited by the ingredients available in my fridge. Sometimes it works, and sometimes.... mm... not so much. However, this time culinary luck was on my side.
The combination of tender mushrooms and fresh shrimp tossed into a bed of Cajun spiced black beans and rice makes the delicious side to fish, chicken, beef, pork or almost any meal. I made the recipe with a nice balance of flavors and Cajun spice which can sometimes overpower a dish. But, if you like a kick of heat to your food, by all means, increase the spice to the level that best suits your taste. I suggest making it according to my directions first and then adjusting the flavor to control the final results.
If you love the flavor of this spice, try my Cajun Spiced Fried Chicken Tenders. They are simple to make and pairs beautifully with this dish. The combination of recipes were a huge hit with my family and we still had plenty of left-overs to eat the next day!
I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest.
