Tell us about your recipe
Daddy rarely grilled this for us, but when he did we we devoured it. Mother served rice with it, but today I usually serve it with either orzo or garlic bread. Daddy got the recipe from a man that he worked with. We didn't know that man, but I remember daddy saying, "he's got some Cajun in him."
