    >I think I’m becoming more adventurous with seafood, just by reading your blog.

    I wonder makes this version of Old Bay “blackened,” though. (Mmm, carcinogens?)

  17. Nate-n-Annie says:

    >@all – thanks!

    @Regina – I think it has to do with the more "Cajun blackening spices" they use in the mix.

    @Cumi & Ciki – that…and butter! :-)

    @Joie de vivre and @Mrs L – you to should get together!
