Jalapeno Shrimp Bake

I created this recipe after purchasing some monstrous prawns from the market, combined with a bit of a sweet tooth, hence the cinnamon. Don’t overdo it, though, as you want the jalapeno flavor to come out, as well as the Cajun seasonings.

Jumbo shrimp baked with jalapeno peppers, seasoned with cinnamon and Cajun dust.

Jalapeno Shrimp Bake


  • 1 pound prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped into rings
  • 12 stalks asparagus
  • 1 large orange, zested and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasonings
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add prawns, olive oil, Cajun seasonings, cinnamon, ground black pepper and half the orange zest. Toss to coat the shrimp.
  3. To a medium sized baking dish, add in this order; asparagus, jalapeno slices, coated prawns, then top with about half of the orange slices.
  4. Bake about 20 minutes, or until the prawns are cooked through – pink and opaque.
  5. Transfer meal to 2 dishes. Top with remaining orange zest and orange slices.
  6. Serve!
