Cajun Butter Sauce

I don’t know about you, but if I’m eating seafood, I always crave some type of sauce. The best way to eat crawfish, shrimp, fish, or anything with seafood, for that matter, is with a delicious Cajun butter sauce! You can buy this butter sauce in the store or you can make it yourself at home. Now even if you go out and buy one at the store, it’s not just a bottle of butter with some spice; it’s actually a rich sauce that has a lot of herbs and spices in there as well.

What is Cajun Butter Sauce?

Cajun butter sauce is a spicy, creamy sauce that’s perfect for dipping or drizzling on just about anything. It’s made with butter, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce—all of which are ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!

You can use this sauce on chicken wings or Shrimp Stuffed Salmon or even as a topping for French fries. Because it’s so versatile and easy to make, you’ll find yourself using it over and over again.

What does Cajun Butter Sauce taste like?

When you think of this butter sauce, you probably think of a delicious, spicy sauce that goes well with everything. But what does it actually taste like?

Well, if you’ve never had cajun butter sauce before, let us tell you: it tastes… like cajun butter sauce.

That’s right—it tastes just like itself! It doesn’t taste like anything else because it is itself. This butter sauce is not a derivative of another sauce; rather, it is its own original creation that has become popular for its ability to complement many different foods and flavors.

Some people have compared the flavor of this butter sauce to a milder version of Tabasco sauce or horseradish, which makes sense as these two ingredients are commonly used in cajun cooking (and also happen to be delicious). However, we believe that no two people will ever agree on exactly what this unique flavor tastes like—because sometimes things are just better left up to the imagination!

Cajun Butter Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

How to make Cajun Butter Sauce for Seafood & Shrimp

  2. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

What to serve with?

This sauce is delicious, and it’s a great way to add some spice to your meal. You can use it on almost anything!

Here are a few ideas:

  • Serve it over pasta. Try pairing it with penne or Texas Chicken Spaghetti for a spicy Italian dish that’s sure to please.
  • Serve it over chicken. This will give your chicken an extra kick of flavor that’ll make dinner time even more exciting, and everyone will love it.
  • Use it as a dipping sauce for veggies, chips, or breadsticks!

Tips

  1. Make the sauce in advance. The longer it sits, the better it gets.
  2. Use real butter, not margarine or vegetable oil. You can’t beat the flavor of real butter!
  3. Use sweet paprika instead of regular paprika for a sweeter taste and a deeper color.
  4. Add some Cajun seasoning to your meal before adding the béarnaise sauce for an added kick!
