DIRECTIONS

Season shrimp all over with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper. In a large pot over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy, about 6 minutes. Drain bacon pieces on a paper towel-lined plate. 
Add shrimp to bacon fat and cook until pink, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer shrimp to plate with bacon. 
Drain bacon fat then melt butter in pot, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and flour, and cook 30 seconds more. Add potatoes, broth, thyme, and green onions, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. 
Stir in corn and cream, and simmer 5 minutes more. Turn off heat and stir in cooked shrimp, then season with salt, pepper, and paprika. 
Garnish each serving with bacon.
