Boiled shrimp by www.monsoursphotography.net
My three-year-old son, Banks, is a pretty picky eater! His favorite foods all involve loads of sugar, but there is hope for him yet! Banks loves shrimp. He eats fried shrimp, boiled shrimp (if I peel it for him), shrimp gumbo, but his favorite is shrimp stew. So for this cold night, I’m making shrimp stew for dinner!
From visiting Big Easy Foods in Lake Charles, I’ve learned that Gulf shrimp are notorious for their robust flavor profile and better yet – they are really healthy! Shrimp are a good source of protein, omega-3, selenium and vitamin B12.
Big Easy Foods has a great selection of Louisiana shrimp in the freezer section at your local Wal-Mart or grocery store, but if you are visiting Southwest Louisiana, try cast netting along the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road to catch your own!
