Fiesta Shrimp Dip and more...

Being from Pensacola, seafood has always been a favorite of mine! Fiesta Shrimp Dip has to be one of my absolute favorites! I always double or triple the recipe, it's that good!

"Some Like It South" Pensacola Junior League Cookbook
Fiesta Shrimp Dip

1 cup sour cream

onions, lemons and Old Bay seasoning)

Another favorite is grilled fish or sauteed fish! Here's one of my favorites!

Spicy Grilled Fish
4 red snapper or orange roughy fillets (6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
2 teaspoons Smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon each dried oregano, basil and thyme
Optional Seasoning: Use 2 Tbsp. Caribbean Jerk seasoning.
Directions
Brush oil over fish. In a small bowl, combine the seasonings;
sprinkle over fish and press into both sides. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill.
Grill fillets, covered, over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side
or until fish flakes with a fork.
I use my grill basket for ease in turning fish.
Yield: 4 servings.
