Cajun Shrimp Pasta
Cook the pasta according to the package directions, or until al dente. Right before draining, reserve ½ cup of the pasta water.
While the pasta is cooking, pat the shrimp dry very well with a paper towel and season it with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cook the shrimp for about 3-4 minutes, stirring often, or until it has just turned pink on both sides with an open C shape.
Using the same skillet, add 1 ½ tablespoon of olive oil and cook the minced garlic over medium heat, stirring often, for about 1 minute. Do not let it brown!
