  2. Grill or broil steak, turning once, 3-5 minutes per side for medium-rare; sprinkle with remaining 1 t. lime juice and brush with reserved sauce mixture during last minute of cooking. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. If desired, garnish with lime and parsley and serve with additional barbecue sauce.

Really a unique recipe which we enjoyed!!! I too, made this using flank steak as my store didn't have skirt steak. For the seasoning I used Emeril's Essence and followed the recipe as written. Served it with baked potato, Creole Green Beans and garlic bread for a delicious meal!!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.

This was delicious! It had a unique Cajun flair, a little different than most Cajun recipes I've tried (and I mean that in a good way). And it's so easy to prepare, too. I chose to broil my skirt steak, but I'd like to try this on the grill on another day. You cannot go wrong with this recipe. We really liked your recipe, JackieOhNo! Made for ZWT 9 (Cajun/Creole).

This was really, really flavorful. I am used to squirting fresh lime juice on my skirt steak since I like it Colombian-style, but the Creole seasoning really "kicked it up a notch!"
