    Mysterygirl's Note:

    This is from a local cajun restaurant called Jazz. It's probably my favorite dish that they serve. Notice that both margarine and butter are used - the margarine so that it can be used at a higher temp for blackening.

      This is also my favorite dish at Jazz. I live in Colorado now and make this all the time. Delicious and decadent.
