Cajun butter dipping sauce… is there anything better!?!? I use this with my seafood boil in a bag recipe. However, if you are making just standard lobster, shrimp or crab than you have to use this sauce. I never understood dipping crab in basic butter dip… it was never THAT good. However, you add in these spices and it takes things to the next level!
See our video on an entire cajun meal, incorporating this sauce!
Truly nothing is better than a butter dip, adding this cajun spice makes it even more glorious. It is really simple and just takes a few ingredients to create. You can even cheat and just by some creole seasoning vs. mix all the seasonings yourself.
What is the difference between cajun & creole? Essentially cajun is traditionally just a few ingredients where creole is more fancy and is 7+ ingredients. As much as I love creole, cajun is just as great! With tha said, since this is a cajun recipe it makes things so easy for you! A few ingredients and bam, you’re done.
This is the best sauce for your seafood so I thoroughly recommend you use this instead of a melted butter setup the next time you go big with lobster, crab shrimp. You can even use this to coat your chicken with when grilling it, steaks, salmon or anything you want this great taste with.
Cajun and creole dishes are truly the most flavorful dishes in the USA and I can’t get enough. If you have never done much creole food than you have to try my simple seafood boil in a bag recipe. It takes 10 minutes to prep and the rest is just waiting as it cooks in the oven. It might be the simplest recipe with the most taste that is ever created. Cajun food can be so simple and start it off here!
