Week 13... Cleveland V Jacksonville... and what is Jacksonville known for? Nothing
A lot of Googling went into this week's personal challenge and the searches all came back the same, Jacksonville has no culture
A city of transplants and Navy people, apparently they have no local cuisine. Nothing that has been handed down through the ages and the city can call its own. But they do have one thing, several shrimp festivals each year. Good enough for me
So 2 lbs of shrimp later, this is what we have:
Panko breaded and deep fried shrimp; a grilled shrimp kabab featuring Canadian bacon wrapped shrimp seasoned with lemon pepper, peel 'n eat shrimp boil and shrimp scampi. I figured if my challenge was to pay homage to the shrimp festivals of Jacksonville, FL, I wanted to fix the shrimp in different ways. Plus who can eat 2 lbs of shrimp all fixed the same way...
Don't answer that
The dipping sauce was mayo, ketchup, cajun seasoning and a little horseradish.
