My neighbor and friend Cameron gave me this recipe and it will be the dish that I make for Taylor for her birthday. Cam watches Ella and Taylor on the days that I go into the office and she had this recipe and some blackened seasoning ready for me one day when I went to pick them up. As soon as I heard the name of this dish, I knew that it would be on the menu for that weekend. I do like me some spicy seafood!
This will be dinner on Taylor’s birthday when she turns 7 in August. She was so funny eating this. She kept apologizing because she couldn’t stop eating it. At one point she said, “Mommy where did you get this recipe????” When I told her it was from Miss Cameron she said “Well, you tell her its delicious!” Taylor doesn’t usually gush over something unless it’s loaded with sugar and food coloring so I was very happy to hear it. I shouldn’t say that. Taylor is actually a very good eater, but she does like her sweets more than anything else.
This would be fantabulous over pasta and the next time I make this that is probably what I will do. We had crusty bread to soak up the sauce and it was wonderful. This makes a lot of sauce and you could almost half the amount. I will say that I was surprised how much of it we ended up devouring.
If you are looking for a fun seafood recipe with some kick this is a must try! I know I said that this is what I will be serving for Taylor’s birthday, but I might actually request it for my own:-)
