Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F.Wash and dry all produce.In Step 4, use this garlic guide to determine what garlic level you prefer (dbl each measurement for 4 ppl): 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp extra! Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Cut cucumbers in half, lengthwise, then into 1/2-inch thick half-moons. Using a strainer, drain and rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towel.
Toss shrimp with 3 tbsp mayo (dbl for 4 ppl) and half the Cajun seasoning in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Combine panko and remaining Cajun seasoning in a shallow dish.
