What does Spicy Cajun Butter Sauce Tastes?
Try to direct your fictitious taste buds to something buttery, garlicky, and scorching hot for a moment while you are still closed-eyed. However, none of the other flavors are drowned out by the spice, which gives it a robustness. A shrimp or crawfish bake would taste great with this seasoning.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small onion, diced (about 1/4 cup)
- 1 celery stalk, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
- 1 green bell pepper, diced (about 1/4 cup) -2 red bell peppers, diced (about 2 tablespoons)
- 1 15 oz can tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes, drained and liquid reserved for dipping sauce later on.
- 3 cups chicken broth or water plus 2 chicken bouillon cubes if you don’t have any broth on hand. If using a homemade stock then use triple the amount of broth called for here as well as some salt to taste if needed after simmering down all that deliciousness in your slow cooker overnight!
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cooked meat and any juice from pan. Add spices and Worcestershire sauce; cook for another 5 minutes or so until heated through. Add milk slowly as needed to thin out consistency if needed (I added 1/4 cup). Stir flour into sauce until smooth; add hot sauce if desired before serving with parsley on top!
Cajun butter sauce is great on chicken, shrimp and vegetables. It’s also delicious on rice, pasta and even popcorn! If you have leftover cajun seasoning from another recipe that doesn’t call for butter (which is probably what you should use), feel free to mix it into the rest of your ingredients.
There are a few tricks of the trade when it comes to making this recipe. The first is using a pan with a lid. This will allow your butter and sauce to simmer in without drying out or burning. Second, choose a sauté pan that is large enough to fit all of your sauce in one layer and still have room for the caramelized butter on top. It’s important for every part of this dish to be evenly distributed, so avoid overcrowding by using multiple pans if necessary!
Finally—and perhaps most importantly—you’ll want something large enough for both layers: The butter will sit at the bottom while the sauce cooks then everything gets transferred into another dish before serving so they can be plated together at once!
Spicy Cajun Butter Sauce is best to serve with
- Red meat, such as pork chops and beef steak
- Seafood like shrimp, calamari and crab cakes (not all seafoods are created equal!)
- Rice dishes like jambalaya or gumbo
- Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
