Cajun-Rubbed Triangle Steaks with Shrimp & Rémoulade

From the spicy rub on the steaks to the sweet and tangy sauce, Cajun influences abound in this hearty dinner.

Cajun cooking is bold, distinct, and known for its heavy use of seasoning — and these savory steaks pack a punch. The choice of thick triangle steaks allows for a generous rub of dried spices on all sides, for enticing flavor in every mouthful.

A staple of Cajun cuisine, shrimp cooks quickly on the grill, and makes a classy topper while requiring very little extra effort. Its charred flavor pairs perfectly with the rémoulade, a chilled sauce made with honey and Dijon, for a quintessentially Cajun finish.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Pulse mayonnaise, bell pepper, Dijon, scallions, shallots, parsley, honey, and 1 Tbsp. lemon juice in a food processor until minced. Chill rémoulade until ready to serve.

Rub all sides of steaks with Cajun Rub.

Toss shrimp with 1 Tbsp. lemon juice and oil; season with salt and black pepper.

Grill steaks, covered, 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove steaks from grill, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Grill shrimp, uncovered, until pink and opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Remove shrimp from grill and chop. Serve steaks topped with rémoulade and shrimp.


To make easy work of the sauce, use a food processor to mince and combine the ingredients all at once.


Rub all sides of the steaks with the Cajun Rub. Press it into the meat to help the spices adhere.


For bite-sized pieces of shrimp in every mouthful, chop them up after grilling and before topping steaks.
