Roasted Cajun Shrimp Salad
This is my roasted Cajun shrimp salad made with toppings from a sheet pan of roasted Cajun shrimp. While the shrimps were roasting in the oven, I prepared the romaine lettuce and made a Cajun vinaigrette salad dressing.

Here’s a close up of my sheet pan of Cajun shrimp with cherry tomatoes and red onions. The sheet pan takes only about 12 minutes of roasting in the oven, which is more than enough time for me to prep the salad.
And this is my homemade Cajun vinaigrette. It is an appetizing balance of hot, spicy, sour & mildly sweet flavours. Homemade means being able to tweak the heat (cayenne pepper), sour tang (white wine vinegar) & sweetness (honey or maple syrup) to suit one’s taste buds. This time, I made my salad dressing hotter than usual, since I am having this salad all to myself :)
Wish I could have this salad for the lunch! Love those flavourful shrimp!.
Interesting dressing using cayenne pepper. My threshold for spice has gone down. Still can take spice but not too spicy.
