I have been so lucky to have 5 of my recipes posted to Ebony.com!
The latest one is a recipe for Blackened Shrimp & Grits!
If you follow the blog, you know that I had huge success Easter Sunday making Leigh's Shrimp & Grits. My family loved it but when I posted the pictures and recipe, I was getting constant kudos from friends and followers, proving that shrimp and grits REALLY is a hot dish right now!
Therefore when I was sent McCormick Grill Mate Packets from Ebony, to incorporate into a dish, I still had shrimp and grits on the brain and BAM my Blackened Shrimp & Grits were born!
You can read more about my inspiration for the dish on Ebony.com but I strongly suggest you make this. It really gave a whole other dimension to a plate that was, what I thought, already perfect.

|Here's how it can be served family style!|
|I poured the gravy on top of the creamy grits, added a nice pile of shrimp and the result was this gorgeous plate!|
|After the shrimp were cooked, I began the gravy...|
|I pan fried the shrimp, it took me a couple batches, but the cast iron skillet REALLY made a difference in the flavor and color!|
|I took the time to make sure every shrimp was coated with the rub.|
|It all began with these. The Smokin' Texas BBQ works best in this dish. (It did try both)|
