2. In a large bowl, combine the shrimp with olive oil, Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes (if using), and salt. Toss to ensure the shrimp are evenly coated.

3. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer on a baking sheet.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink, firm, and cooked through.

5. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side.
