Cajun Spiced Shrimp Tacos

Y'all I like spicy, and this is spicy! Make sure to keep a glass of water right beside you!! I'm not sure I pan seared them correctly, but they're cooked & they taste amazing. so who cares what they look like!
1 pounds shrimp, thawed
1/2-1 tsp salt (to taste)
1/4-12 tsp pepper (to taste)
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1/2 tbsp. onion powder
1/2-1 Cajun spice (to taste)
/12 tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tbsp. cumin
1 tbsp. paprika
1/2 tbsp. oregano
1 packet stevia (optional)
1.If you are starting with frozen shrimp, take them out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator the night before cooking to let it thaw. If that isn't an option, put shrimp in a colander, and run them under cold water for about 5 minutes, or until thawed.
2. Mix all Cajun spice ingredients together. Stir all ingredients for the spice mixture together well in a small bowl. Toss shrimp in 2 tbs of the seasoning, and save the rest for later.
3. Sauteeing: Preheat a small skillet over medium to medium-high heat, and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Add the shrimp, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook about 2-3 minutes per side, or until they curl and turn pink.
4. Place on 1 small, 6" wheat tortilla and ENJOY! <3
