cou cou and blackened shrimp

I had such a fantastic Cooking Conversation last year with @chef.liam; he taught me a Trini dish: cou cou and blackened shrimp. It is completely delicious; the spicy shrimp pair perfectly with the comforting cou cou. Please please make his recipe and give Liam a follow; he's a super exciting chef.
