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

  6. >you’re right. Its so easy, even i could cook it.. lol. I guess the secret to this dish is getting huge, fresh, succulent prawns!

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

    @Cumi & Ciki – that…and butter! 🙂
