Hello friends,

Since you have begun the week?, I wait that very well.

To encourage little today I you bring a recipe that is spectacular!!!!. Indeed, do not stop doing it because it is going to be charmed with you.

It is ideal to serve it as inlet to share or even as appetizer. Only it has a problem!, that you must do many prawns because the whole world will want to repeat. When you try one already you cannot stop eating, they are a real vice!.

Them to wet in the mayonnaise that we are going to prepare Cajún with a spicy point and already you will see, vais to hallucinating!. Simply delicious!!!

The mixture of spices cajún gives to the plate peculiarly and exquisite flavor. The culture cajún comes from the first French-speaking settlers, known like “acacianos”, that settled themselves in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, in Canada. In the 18th century, on having been removed by the Britishers, they went towards the south up to coming to the colonies of Louisiana.

The cajunes are the descendants of the Frenchmen who were living in the Acadia (in the border between(among) Canada and The United States), and they were deported to Louisiana.

The kitchen(cuisine) cajún was born of the need. The refugees, principally farmers impoverished by the British expulsion, had to learn to adapt his traditional French food to the autochthonous species where they were living: the rice, the crab and the sugar cane. Besides the obvious French and Canadian influence, the kitchen cajún suffered the African and Amerindian influence.
