Grilling these Cajun Shrimp Sausage Kabobs just added to our fun Friday vibes.
Fridays are just more fun when the sun is shining and you get to hang out on the patio with a cold beer in hand.
You can control the amount of spice with how much cajun seasoning and hot sauce you use.
You all know I went with a good spicy kick of course.
This andouille sausage had a good amount of heat just by itself.
So if you don’t like spice just use a regular smoked sausage instead.
How to Make Cajun Shrimp Sausage Kabobs
First, peel and devein a pound of jumbo shrimp.
Then get out the ingredients for the cajun dipping sauce.
You’ll need, mayo, cajun seasoning, garlic, lime juice, and Tabasco sauce.
Just put in a small bowl or container and stir until evenly mixed.
Once the sauce is done, cut the sausage into inch size pieces.
The sausage is already cooked, so snacking on a few small pieces is perfectly fine, at least that what I kept telling myself 😉
Then put the shrimp and sausage on kabob skewers.
And brush them with olive oil and season with more cajun seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.
Next stop is the grill!
Preheat the grill to medium high heat and they will cook for only 2 1/2 minutes per side.
Shrimp don’t take long and really just heating up the sausage and creating a nice char on them.
The same cook time is one of the reasons I paired the two together for these kabobs.
Serve Cajun Shrimp Sausage Kabobs with the cajun lime dipping sauce!
Such a yummy and easy meal to make.
Honestly this was our whole dinner because I was not even feeling like messing with a side dish.
We were lucky enough to have leftovers, which were just as good the next day 🙂
