Two weeks ago my husband’s cousin was at our house for dinner.  She noticed the book Come on In by the Jackson Junior League and commented that she also had the book, loved it, but had never tried any of the recipes.

“You know,” I replied.  “I actually haven’t either.”

I have already flipped through this entire book and jotted down three sticky notes full of recipes I want to try.  There may be several posts coming from this book – at least two by the end of the week.

I picked this one because my husband and I both like shrimp, sausage, and anything grilled on a skewer.  Andouille sausage is a spicy smoked sausage used a lot in Cajun cooking.  If you can’t find it, chorizo or smoked sausage would be a great substitute.

The shallot mustard sauce was DELICIOUS!  I would consider making it alone to put on just about anything. If using small wooden skewers like we did, be sure to soak them for 30 minutes prior to prevent the skewers from burning.
