Cajun Crawfish Egg Rolls
My freezer stays stocked with crawfish tails. They’re so versatile and a staple in Cajun and Creole cuisine. As I was looking for new ways to use them, I decided to try my hand at making some egg rolls.
Cajun Seafood Gumbo
It doesn't get more Louisiana than gumbo. While the original stew pot of gumbo derived from French and West African roots, it has become a staple dish across Louisiana's Cajun and Creole cuisines.
Cajun Chicken and Shrimp Stir Fry
When I want a quick meal for dinner, I always turn to a one-skillet stir fry! It’s full of flavor, and can be made differently every time depending on what you have available in your fridge!
Red Beans and Rice
Growing up, there was hardly a Monday that went by where we didn’t have red beans & rice with a side of fried chicken. It’s a tradition that predates my childhood and that Louisiana natives have held true to for centuries.
NOLA BBQ Shrimp
Did you know that when we “barbecue” shrimp in New Orleans, it doesn’t involve any barbecue sauce or an outdoor grill?! Instead, we’re referring to sautéed shrimp in a rich brown butter sauce, spiked with Cajun spices.
By far one of the most popular dishes in Louisiana is the jambalaya! This one-pot delectable dish has influences of Spanish, French, African, Native American, and Caribbean cooking styles and flavors. Most people relate jambalaya to the Spanish dish paella that was brought to New Orleans by foreign explorers.
