We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Ragin' Cajuns!

A few Friday nights ago, we really decided to mix things up and try something new.  On the menu...seasoned crawdads with a side of okra and tomatoes...Cajun style!!

The crayfish were from Kroger and next time we'll have to look harder for a different source (I think these came from overseas).  Ok for this first try.  They were pre-cooked and seasoned, so all I did was rinse them and steam them to heat them up.

The okra and tomato side dish we took from a recipe in Down Home with the Neelys.  We haven't used their book much, but if anyone knows about southern cookin', the Neelys do.

I don't feel like typing the whole recipe (maybe Ang will fill it in later), but their secret to cooking okra is searing it at high heat, then finishing it for a few minutes in the tomatoes.  If okra is cooked for too long on too low of heat, it's gets all slimy.

Going out on a limb with this meal, but all in all it turned out great! 

The aftermath...
