Legendary Grilled Shrimp at Home
Skewers (metal or wood)

2. Garlic Butter (chopped garlic, onion powder and whipped butter)
Step 1 – Prepare Shrimp
If using frozen shrimp, thaw them first. Using desired size shrimp, place them on a flat surface with tails facing the same direction Run skewer through each shrimp ensuring they are as flat as possible and slightly separated (This will ensure even cooking) Once all shrimp are skewered, season the shrimp evenly using a shaker (This will ensure even seasoning and flavor)

Step 3 – Serve Shrimp
Place skewered cooked shrimp on a serving platter or individual plate(s). Serve with a lemon wedge and ramekin of melted compound butter (for dipping)
Legendary Blackened Salmon at Home
Fresh salmon filets
- Favorite Cajun seasoning or
- cayenne, chili powder, garlic and salt and pepper to taste
shake an even layer of the seasoning mix on salmon to taste
heat clarified butter in a skillet until it is smoky hot
gently place the coated filets into the pan (use tongs and don't splash the butter).
Cook the filets evenly on both sides until it yields to gentle pressure.
Cooking Tip… The butter and seasonings create a crust due to the high temp, and lock in the juices.
