When I think of my favorite movies, most of them are from 15 or more years ago. Not that there aren't some really great movies that are "newer", but there was something magical about the films from the 80's and 90's. I've been slowly introducing my girls to the classics that I grew up on- The Princess Bride, Never Ending Story, 10 Things I Hate About You, Titanic... They initially snubbed their noses at these older films, but in the end, found that they enjoyed them very much. There's one film I haven't gotten around to watching with them yet, but it's on my list of things to do before sending Mariah off to college this fall, and that's Forrest Gump. It's a long one, but I think it's a film that everyone needs to see at least once in their life. I'm pretty sure that has to be one of the most quoted films of our generation, no? Who hasn't yelled, "Run, Forrest, Run!" at some point? Or talked about how life is like a box of chocolates? And, of course, you gotta love good old Bubba Gump rambling on about how many different ways you can serve up shrimp. Allison has been on me to make her some shrimp for the past month since it's one of her favorite eats. Her and Bubba would have been best friends, I'm sure. Last week we had some pretty good sales on shrimp, so picked up a few pounds, then made the family this Cajun Baked Shrimp from Golden Blossom Honey.
The Cajun seasoning gives it a true southern flare, and is there anything better than southern cuisine? I don't think so! You could invite Bubba Gump to dinner and I'm sure this Cajun Baked Shrimp would shoot straight to the top of his list of favorite ways to cook shrimp. It's definitely at the top of my family's list of favorites now!
Ingredients1/3 cup olive oil
