"Life loves the liver of it."
-Maya Anjelou, Poet
So you think you don't like liver. You might be wrong. So many people have had liver that has been cooked until it is tough as shoe leather, and that brings out all the bitterness. This recipe is full of great flavor with onions, mushrooms and Cajun spice. It is quick and simple, tasty and great for you.
There are as many different recipes for Cajun Spice blends as there are Cajuns. There are so many great blends available that I don’t bother to make my own. Recipes can include any of the following ingredients:
The one key is to check the Nutrition Facts to see if the blend has salt in the mix. I have seen blends with as much as 300 mg sodium in 1/4 teaspoon! Buy a blend with little or no salt.
