Baked Honey Cajun Shrimp

Baked Honey Cajun Shrimp
1 lb large raw shrimp 21-26 count, peeled & deveined
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice of 1 small or 1/2 large lemon
1/4 cup extra light olive oil, not extra virgin
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
Optional Garnish:
1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
In a medium bowl, whisk together: juice of 1 lemon, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 Tbsp soy sauce, 1 Tbsp honey, 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning, and 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley. Add 1 lb shrimp and stir well to coat. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
To make the garnish: In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 Tbsp chopped parsley with 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest – cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Preheat Oven to 450˚F. Transfer shrimp to a baking dish large enough to hold shrimp in a single layer. Bake uncovered until firm (8-10 minutes). Don’t over-bake or shrimp can become rubbery. Sprinkle the top with optional garnish and serve. P.S. The sauce left in the pan makes for an excellent bread dip .
Enjoy !
