I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Blackened Shrimp Skewers

Pan seared shrimp skewers coated in homemade blackening seasoning makes these an irresistibly smoky, umami hit!

400g (just under 1 lb) 31/40 shrimp
2 tbsps butter
1 tbsp olive oil

3 tsps smoked paprika
2 tsps garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dry oregano
pinch or 2 of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Lemon and lime wedges to serve

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels and feed onto wooden skewers that have been soaking in water at least 15 minutes. Then combine the seasonings and sprinkle evenly over both sides of the shrimp. Let sit for 30 minutes. You can use longer skewers but just make sure they fit in your frying pan. These shorties fit well and are just right for appetizers.

Heat butter and olive oil to medium high in a large skillet. Add the skewers and sauté 6-10 minutes or until the shrimps are opaque.

Then serve hot with lemon and lime wedges.
