Game Changer

Omit the shrimp & substitute crawfish tails for a new twist.

Cornmeal Blini
Macon County Pecan Remoulade
1 lb {26-30-count} wild American shrimp, peeled & deveined
2 tsp Creole seasoning, divided
2 tsp vegetable oil, divided
1 small sweet onion, sliced
3/4 cup orange bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch strips
3/4 cup green pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch strips
1 garlic clove, pressed
Garnishes: Scallions, parsley, chopped pecans

Prepare the Cornmeal Blini as directed. Prepare the Macon County Pecan Remoulade as directed. Cover & chill. Coat the shrimp with 1 1/2 tsp Creole seasoning. Heat 1 tsp oil in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over Medium-High heat. Cook the shrimp 4 to 5 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove the shrimp from the skillet & drain well. Pat dry with paper towels, if necessary. Heat the remaining 1 tsp oil in the same skillet over Medium-High heat. Sauté the onion for 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers & cook 2 more minutes. Add the garlic & cook 1 minute. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 tsp Creole seasoning. Top the Cornmeal Blini with the shrimp, the pepper mixture & the Macon County Pecan Remoulade. Garnish, if desired. 

The Extra Point

The shrimp & the remoulade is divine over a salad of mixed greens, charred corn kernels, diced tomato & avocado. Sprinkle each serving with extra toasted pecans for added crunch time goodness.

When purchasing shrimp, the count is a range of how many to expect per pound. They will need to be peeled & deveined. Remove the shells leaving the tails intact. Cut a small slit down the back of the shrimp. Use the tip of the paring knife to remove the vein. Rinse under cool water.
