Today’s recipe for blackened steak and shrimp has quickly become a family favorite for obvious reasons — the food taste so good.  When it comes to surf and turf one of my favorite preparation techniques is to blacken the steak and shrimp with Cajun seasonings and lots of grass fed butter for probably the best tasting blackened dish you’ll ever eat. Along side the meats I serve a few sides or two with my favorite side being baked potato topped with heaps of butter and sour cream.
