Cajun Shrimp- recipe

Canadian doctor and amateur genealogist Anne McPhail finds a murdered woman on the floor of the library in Culver's Mill's. Jennifer Smith, the dead librarian, was a gifted genealogical researcher who had been collecting information about her clients, and using it to blackmail them.

A Quick Shrimp Recipe for Genealogists who got lost in Research.

  • 1 lb. unccoked shrimp (remove shells, tails and veins)
  • 1 Tbsp cajun seasoning (less if you don't like it too warm)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 c. red pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 8 oz. linguine, cooked al dente
  • Stir together and coat the shrimp in cajun seasoning. In a large fry pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the seasoned shrimp and sauté until shrimp begins to turn pink. Add the red pepper and minced garlic and sauté another minute or two.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and add the cream, parmesan cheese, basil, and pepper and simmer for about 10 minutes (I like to cook the pasta while this is simmering).
  • Toss in the cooked pasta and stir to coat.
