Last night was a very unusual night for us, no soccer games and no soccer practice. I plan our meals out the week before and usually have a back-up plan for a change in plans like last night; only I really didn't feel like making the back-up plan.
I was in the mood for fish and was able to get four really nice catfish fillets to make Broiled Catfish
My daughter asked if she could make cornbread and of course I said, "Of course!!!!!" She decided to make garlic butter to brush on top of the cornbread. While she was getting the butter and garlic out of the oven, we went to plan "B" and wound up with Cajun Butter.
Put 4 tablespoons of room temperature butter in a bowl, add 1 teaspoon of minced garlic and 1 teaspoon of Emeril's Essence (recipe at the bottom). Mix with a fork until thoroughly blended.
A word of warning here, this cute little bowl looks innocent and inviting. The inviting part is what I feel obligated to warn you about...this butter is addictive!
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
