WARNING: BLACKENING MAY CREATE LARGE AMOUNTS OF SMOKE. WE RECOMMEND THAT THIS METHOD OF COOKING IS DONE ONLY OUTDOORS!! (I don't know why they say that, since *they* cook it indoors.. Just make sure the room is well ventilated, I guess...)

Suggested Wine: Light lager beer, Sauvignon Blanc NOTES : Have fun with this dish! It's fun, it's hot and it's authentic, but don't burn it.
