Cheesy Shrimp Biscuits

These are super easy to make and come out perfect every time.  Goes good with seafood or any kind of main dish.  You can make the batter ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake.  This recipe makes about 16 medium-size biscuits.
Cheesy Shrimp & Cheddar Biscuits

4 tbl. olive oil
4 tbl. butter
16 medium to large raw shrimp, peeled and chopped
2 tbl. blackened steak or seafood seasoning
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 cup milk
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
good pinch of garlic powder
good pinch of ground black pepper
good pinch of cayenne pepper
2 tsp. fresh parsley, chopped (or you can use dried)

·         In a large skillet, combine the olive oil and butter and bring to high heat
·         Toss the shrimp in a bowl with the blackened seasoning until well coated
·         When the oil is hot, fry the shrimp quickly (about 2 minutes per side), turning once
·         Remove the shrimp with a spatula and set the oil aside to cool for later use
·         After allowing the shrimp to cool a bit, chop into fairly small pieces
·         Heat the oven to 350°F.
·         In a bowl, combine the Bisquick, milk, cheddar, and shrimp and mix until a smooth dough forms (you might need to add a bit more milk if it seems too dry – you want these a little on the wetter side, but not too wet.)
·         Drop the dough by the spoonful (about 2 tbl. each) onto an ungreased cookie sheet
·         Bake for about 10 to12 minutes (I turn them once during baking because our oven cooks a bit hotter on the bottom than the top – you might not need to) until they turn a golden brown
·         Pour the reserved oil from frying the shrimp into a small bowl and mix in the garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and parsley (you can re-heat the oil first if necessary)
·         Brush the tops of the hot biscuits with the oil before serving (or you can just let people put their own on with a spoon at the table)
