Cajun Shrimp Pasta

This is a sauce that can be considered hot to some so watch it. The last thing you need to do is set the date on fire or get her lips so hot that kissing is painful. Yep, no fun in there. The sauce is almost like water and that is where the bread comes in. You use it to soak up the excess liquid and eat.

This is a total finger food because you eat the bread with your hands and you also pick up the shrimp and eat them with your hands as well. This is a nice entrée to offering to feed each other shrimp!! Oh yeah baby! Also, do not worry about the beer as most of the alcohol will burn off. Sometimes, this is not a good thing.


1. 2 Tbsps of Cajun Choice Blackened Seasoning
2. 48 oz of Budweiser
3. 2 tsp of crushed garlic
4. 15-20 cooked shrimp with tail on
5. ½ “ diameter of spaghetti
6. A nice crusty loaf of French bread


In one pot, pour in everything but the shrimp. Heat it all up and cook it just like you were cooking spaghetti. While it is cooking, take the bread and cut it up into slices or chunks. This is what you are going to dip into the sauce.

Since the recipe calls for 48oz of Budweiser, if you get a six-pack, this will leave two bottles. Mmmmm, what to do, what to do with the other two while you cook? When the pasta is just about done, toss in the shrimp so that they get warmed. If you toss them in too soon and cook them too long, they become rubber shrimp and those are not too tasty.


When the pasta is cooked, ladle it and a lot of the sauce into bowls. Bring it on out and enjoy it. You should have the French bread that you cut up in a bowl on the table so that you can take a chunk and dip it in the excess beer sauce. This stuff will also have a tendency to run down your date’s chin and neck offering you yet another great opportunity to offer the tongue napkin!!

Ron DesMarais started life in Charlottesville, VA and has lived in several parts of the United States. When people hear the number of times he has moved, the question invariably arises as to whether or not he was an ‘Army Brat.’ There is only a half-truth there and that is found by dropping ‘Army’; unless, you consider ‘Army of Darkness.’ After moving with his parents for several years, Ron continued his nomadic ways, which were spurred by his mother’s finding out where he currently lived. In the process of changing dwellings and never getting rental deposits back (which he claims were never his fault), Ron’s financial status required that he start cooking for himself, as he could not afford eating out. This resulted in his quickly getting bored with Top Ramen and deciding to get creative in the kitchen. Soon, a list of recipes with a limited number of inexpensive ingredients started coming together. What really bolstered the creation of his book Cavemen in the Kitchen, and the writing of it as not just a cookbook but a ‘dating aid’ as well was when Ron ended up at a date’s house after a financially draining evening out. As both were hungry but Ron too broke and both too tired to go out somewhere, Ron dug through her cabinets, found some items to work with and based on a recipe he had created earlier, he created a meal for both. She loved it and the results of the meal were amazing in ways those under 18 should not hear about. From that point, dates for Ron consisted of cooking dinner, either at his house or the date’s house, and afterwards, either watching a video or doing something else.
