Make the garlic aioli

Mix together mayonnaise, grated garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Make the Cajun seasoning

In a small bowl mix together the cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, chili flakes, oregano, paprika, cumin, sea salt, and black pepper.

Prep the shrimp

Peel shrimp if necessary, and pat super dry with paper towels – the drier the shrimp, the better they will cook when you sear them.

Cook the shrimp

Heat 2 tablespoons avocado oil or ghee in a large cast iron or non stick skillet over medium high heat. When oil is hot and glistening, add shrimp in a single layer, being careful not to crowd the pan.
