So I had half a baguette left over from dinner the night before and I was trying to figure out what in the world to do with it. I went to the fridge in search of some ideas that wouldn’t require a trip to the store. That was when I saw the lettuce and tomato and the wheels started turning. I immediately started looking for bacon. None! Then I saw the shrimp. This quickly became a no brainer. These Blackened Shrimp Po Boy Bites are really simple to make and pretty quick too. And if you happen to have some bacon on hand, everything is better with bacon. (more…)

A very simple recipe for Blackened Shrimp using my Blackened Seasoning. If you don’t eat the straight out the pan they’re very good dipped in Garlic Brown Butter or Cocktail Sauce. For a real treat use them as a garnish on my Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. (more…)
This is a great Chicken and Sausage Gumbo recipe with just the right amount of heat for the timid. Don’t worry though, you can kick the heat up to what ever level pleases you. This recipe is highly customizable so don’t be afraid to experiment. I garnished this with Blackened Shrimp because I like them that way. You can add 12 oz of raw small or medium peeled and deveined shrimp near the end of the cook cycle. Oysters and/or crab will work as well. The okra is optional in this recipe because I don’t like it but feel free.
File is usually used as a thickener for gumbo but not in this recipe. I use it for flavor and the chocolate roux is the thickener. I use water in this recipe but feel free to try chicken or shrimp stock but watch out for salt so you don’t ruin it. (more…)
