1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the shrimp, Cajun seasoning, olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Toss well to coat the shrimp evenly with the seasoning.
Arrange the seasoned shrimp in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the shrimp are pink and cooked through. Be careful not to overcook them, as they can become rubbery.
Once the shrimp are cooked, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
Transfer the baked Cajun shrimp to a serving platter and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
Serve the shrimp hot with lemon wedges on the side for an extra burst of citrus flavor.
