Blackened Prawns


We have a new partnership with Gourmet Gary’s Natural Foods.  He has the most amazing beef and seafood, sustainably raised without any hormones, antibiotics, or any GMO's.  To see Gary's introduction, chick here.

Today I used the Prawns.  They are huge, plump and sweet.  You get two, 2 lb frozen sleeves in a box.  I seasoned them with our new Louisiana Blackened Seasoning.  This is a SALT FREE mix hand blended from paprika, garlic, yellow mustard, onion, black pepper, oregano, cumin, cayenne, thyme, bay leaves and celery seed.  It has a touch of heat and is great as a traditional blackening seasoning or as a dry rub.  It has an amazing complex flavor.

I served the Blackened Prawns with a Lemon Risotto.  Amazing flavor combination!

Chicken Caprese Salad


Caprese Salad is one of my favorite summer dishes. Homegrown tomatoes and basil with fresh mozzarella, that is what I love!


My tomatoes are not quite ready yet so I made do with vine ripened tomatoes from the grocery store. Fresh mozzarella is a must, the drier aged version is not the same by a long shot. My basil however, is raring to go! I decided to make a salad today using these ingredients and paired with a chicken thigh layered with basil, tomato and mozzarella. Topped with a really great balsamic vinegar.


I used Buon Appetito to season my chicken. This wonderful salt-free blend is a balanced mix of Greek oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and sage. Perfect addition to tomatoes, tomato sauces, fish, poultry, meat and salad dressings.  Evening is Tuscany is a great alternative, this is a delicate blend of garlic, Kosher salt, Mediterranean oerago, basil, crushed red pepper, black pepper, rosemary, onion and parsley.  Added to olive oil, this blend also makes a great bread dip.


A glass of slightly chilled Chianti is a perfect pairing with this dish.

Honey Chipotle Shrimp Salad


One of our BEST SELLING spice blends of all time, Honey Chipotle (also known as Sweet Heat) is used to make this delicious light and refreshing shrimp salad.  Milford Spice company is donating $5,000 (1,000 packets of Sweet Heat) with all of the money going towards building Milford Skate Park.  Once the $5,000 is sold they will receive a grant doubling those funds to $10,000!  Such a great cause, we can't wait to see the kids enjoying that!


A delightful blend of Granulated honey, sea salt, onion, Spanish paprika, chipotle powder and Italian seasoning. 


You can use this blend for just about anything.  Customers have described it as kitchen magic.  Great on popcorn, salmon, shrimp, chicken and veggies.  It is a little bit sweet with a hint of heat.  My kids add it to anything from mayo to ketchup!


This salad is great with a glass of White Shiraz.
