Cajun cuisine uses a variety of spice for flavor and incorporates a lot of seafood and wild game. Although many Cajun dishes contain high-fat, high-sodium ingredients, almost all of them can be made with less fat and salt. For a healthier Cajun option, consider:

  • Boiled or grilled crawfish or shrimp
  • Creole and jambalaya with shrimp or chicken
  • Boiled or grilled seafood
  • Po' Boy sandwiches with roast beef or turkey
  • Brown rice
  • Baked potato or steamed vegetables
  • Blackened entrées (ask to have entrée baked)
  • Red beans and rice with shrimp
