Shrimp Remoulade Tops as a Popular Louisiana Recipes
When I was asked to prepare healthy Louisiana food for an editor from SELF Magazine who was in town touring the area, I was so excited. Some people think eating healthy Louisiana food is an oxymoron but I have a whole book, Gulf Coast Favorites with trim&TERRIFIC Louisiana recipes. What to make???? I couldn’t decide so I prepared a sampling from my Gulf Coast Favorites book to highlight some of my favorite Louisiana recipes! From Crawfish Cakes, Crab Spinach Dip Baked in a bread, to Shrimp Remoulade, I wanted my healthy Louisiana recipes to shine! Best of all, I get all the leftovers!
