CAJUN SHRIMP AND CRAB MAC AND CHEESE
I made this mac and cheese for Christmas dinner last year, and it was a HIT! The fact that my entire family enjoyed it was such a big deal, because black folks don’t play when it comes to mac and cheese. Let’s be real.
Since it’s gotten so many positive reviews, this has now become my go-to macaroni recipe!
Regular baked mac and cheese is already great (if it’s done right), but the addition of fresh crab and spicy Cajun shrimp makes it so much more special.
You get a bite of shrimp, crab and macaroni covered with a blend of gooey, stringy cheeses and a burst of blended flavours in every bite!Alright, so before I break down the layers of perfection in this dish, I wanna talk about the measurements of spices. Now in my family, when we cook, we don’t measure a damn thing. We usually just eyeball it and add as much or little as we want and hope it tastes great (which it always does!). Obviously, since I was planning on sharing the recipe on here, I measured everything – to MY liking.
You’ll see in the recipe below, for the spices I added the minimum amount you can add, and the maximum which is the amount I used. My family’s a huge fan of spicy, so I added quite a bit of Cayenne and Paprika. This may not be the same for you or your family, which means you should add less or more if you like.
