  • Toss the shrimp with the Cajun seasoning in a large bowl. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon soybean cooking oil in a heavy large skillet, over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until the shrimp are pink.

  • Serve the shrimp warm with the reserved salsa and, if desired, Belgian endive leaves.
