|New Orleans Mac N Cheese|
My New Orleans Macaroni and Cheese with savory Cajun Shrimp Scampi is loaded with flavors inspired by a few country's. Primarily this dish is a fusion of deep Louisiana and Italy. Two of my fav's! The New Orleans Mac N Cheese is creamy, cheesy and rich and the Cajun Shrimp Scampi is a savory concoction that actually mixes well with the Mac N Cheese.
A few notes: The Cajun Shrimp Scampi is a bit of an art. Putting the entire dish together can require a great deal of muli-tasking. But to keep it less stressful, I laid it out below with making the Cajun Shrimp Scampi before starting on the New Orleans Mac N Cheese. As an option, you can skip the Scampi sauce and just cook the shrimp in a skillet with Cayenne, Paprika and salt and pepper.
As with most dishes, taste it often during the making process and adjust the seasonings accordingly.
OK here goes!
