For the Steaks:

2 ribeye steaks (or steak of your choice)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste
For the Cajun Shrimp Sauce:

1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley
Salt and black pepper to taste


Prepare the Steaks:

Season the steaks generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the steaks to the skillet and cook to your desired level of doneness (about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare).
Remove steaks from the skillet and set aside to rest.
Prepare the Cajun Shrimp Sauce:

In the same skillet, add olive oil and butter over medium heat.
Add the shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove shrimp and set aside.
Add minced garlic to the skillet and sauté for about 1 minute, until fragrant.
Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream, stirring to combine.
Stir in the Cajun seasoning and bring the mixture to a simmer.
Reduce heat to low and let the sauce thicken for about 5 minutes.
Add the Parmesan cheese and stir until melted and well combined.
Return the shrimp to the skillet and stir to coat in the sauce.
Adjust seasoning with salt and black pepper to taste.
Stir in chopped parsley.

Plate the steaks and spoon the creamy Cajun shrimp sauce over the top.
Garnish with additional parsley if desired.
Serve hot, with your favorite side dishes like mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a fresh salad.
