“Easy, elegant, spicy and only needs a salad to go with it. If needed, reduce Cajun spice to taste.” - by C

Stir in flour and Cajun seasoning. Cook, stirring for 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk, then cook until thickened. Remove from heat, and season with salt and lemon juice. Return shrimp to sauce, and spoon over cooked pasta.

(MOST recipes with high ratings turn out just ok or better if I fudge it a bit, this one is awesome!)"

I used the full amount of cajun seasoning, it was McCormick's Creole Seasoning, and maybe a dash more. (It wasn't too spicy for us) I added black pepper to finish and left off the salt and lemon juice. I will make this for friends soon!"
