Sprinkle the fish fillets with 1 tbsp of Cajun seasoning, both sides. Melt 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat and cook the fish, on each side, for 2-3 minutes or until about 125-F inside.
Remove the fish from the pan and add the chopped shallots and 1 tbsp of butter. Cook the shallots for a few minutes until soft and golden. Do not brown! Add the red pepper and cook another minute longer.
Add the cream to the pan and bring to a slow simmer. Add 1 tbsp of Cajun seasoning to the cream sauce, stirring up any bits from the pan. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the baby shrimp to the pan and bring back to a simmer. Serve spooned over the fish fillets and enjoy!
