Last Saturday’s Demo at the store was so fantastic. Seriously. You should have been there. But no worries – they are just as easy to make at home. I ended up using some that I made for myself as a topping on an egg-avocado-bacon-fest breakfast. But they would make an excellent appetizer, especially with a little fresh bread to dip into the spicy oil.

Don’t forget you can check out this week’s live cooking demo at Cardamom and Cloves (440 Preston Street) at 11am! Samples guaranteed for the first 4 to arrive.


Cajun Shrimp

1/2 cup olive oil
2 TBSP Cajun spice mix
2 TBSP chopped fresh parsley
2 TBSP lemon juice
1/2 TBSP granulated honey (the regular kind will work too but use 1 TBSP)
1 TBSP soy Sauce
1 big pinch of chilli flakes
1 lb deveined shrimp

Mix all ingredients except the parsley together, pour over shrimp and allow to marinate for 1 hour.


Spread the shrimp and oil on a baking sheet and cook for 5-7 minutes at 450 degrees. Serve warm or cold!
