WOW! I cannot imagine how anyone would look at your beautiful photos and not get hungry for shrimp.

Oh, and as a Marylander (Home of Old Bay Seasoning), we appreciate your "plug" for our favorite seafood spice.

I think I'm becoming more adventurous with seafood, just by reading your blog.

I wonder makes this version of Old Bay "blackened," though. (Mmm, carcinogens?)

Simple but oh so good -- I made this when the nice folks at Old Bay sent me some of their new flavors to try. Yum.

Nate @ House of Annie said...

@all - thanks!

@Regina - I think it has to do with the more "Cajun blackening spices" they use in the mix.

@Cumi & Ciki - that...and butter! :-)

@Joie de vivre and @Mrs L - you to should get together!
