Spicy Seafood Cornbread + A Cajun Waltz

Here's another fabulous, family favorite that will blow your taste buds away and have you going back for more. I used leftover boiled seafood from our last seafood boil that I had stashed in my freezer,  This adds a lot of flavor to an already scrumptious dish and is guaranteed to please your family and guests. Cest bon, cher!

Spicy Seafood Cornbread

1 (1/2) cups yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tbs.'s sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 bell pepper, diced
1 (15 ounce) can cream style corn

1 (1/4) cups shredded cheese
2 tbs.'s or more pickled jalapeno slices
1 tsp. or more Cajun seasoning
1/2 lb. each, cooked crawfish tails, medium shrimp, and crab meat 

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients, mix well, and set aside. In another bowl, combine milk, egg, and oil. Add the remaining ingredients, except seafood, and mix well. Stir into the flour mixture and stir in the seafood and mix gently. Transfer to a lightly greased, 13x9 baking pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until golden brown.


And while your seafood cornbread is cooking, cher, why not have a delicious cocktail while you're waiting, and dance to the Cajun music video?  Cheers, ya'll!

 Frosty Lemon Drops

1 (1/2) ounces vodka
1/2 ounce orange liqueur
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. fine sugar
Lemon and lime slices for garnish
1 cup crushed ice

Mix the vodka, orange liqueur, and lemon juice in cocktail shaker filled with the ice. Strain and pour into a frosted cocktail glass and enjoy!

A Cajun Waltz

Here's a little clip that I took of Wayne Toups and Zydecajun playing a Cajun waltz at the finale of Rhythms on the River in River Ranch. The crowd was loving this band.

 Hope that ya'll are having a great weekend. Merci beaucoup for stopping by!

Man, that seafood cornbread looks good! Your recipes make me so homesick for Louisiana! I'm actually trying to figure out how to get back there now.

I absolutely LOVE all the recipes you share! I'm trying to get back into blog land ~ I've missed you. Adding seafood to cornbread is just awesome!

This looks really good and moist. I have to do a stuffing type dish that needs to be transported - this looks like it might be a good substitute for a cornbread stuffing if it''s as moist as it looks. What do you think?
