Southern Recipe Posted by Susan Benton.
I have been working with Lodge Cast Iron recently, and my dear friend Mark Kelly-Public Relations and Advertising Manager, developing recipes for an upcoming venture. With that, I began to reminisce about my own cast iron pieces handed down by generations before me. Our family table stretches generations to parents creating countless meals for children and grand children, many times using the same handed down skillet, a reminder of the familial bond and our strong family heritage.
Many like to write about their love of cast iron as it passes from one generation to the next. My dependable pieces came with me to Seaside, Florida after a divorce more than fifteen years ago, and along the way I have continued to add to my collection, as each time I look Lodge creates a new versatile piece-American made.
This recipe is from the Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook, and was submitted by Seaside, Florida part time resident Julia Reed, also of New Orleans and a contributor to Garden & Gun magazine.
Made with fresh farmers market produce, it is delicious as a main dish or side, especially when peeled Gulf Coast Shrimp are added.
