Louisiana Culinary Trails – Seafood Sensations

Bordered by Texas to the west and Cajun Country to the east, southwestern Louisiana has developed its own brand of cooking. Rustic, spicy, and stick-to-your-ribs might best describe the food of this marshland. Dominating menus are fried and boiled seafood, pork stew, catfish courtbouillon, rice dressing, shrimp and okra gumbo, jambalaya, wild game, and lots and lots of rice. This trail zigzags across the southwestern corner of the state, sometimes known as the Louisiana Outback, stopping at a variety of crawfish houses, oyster bars, cafes, and grocery stores.

What can I cook for supper tonight????

I need something that will fill up my husband and I am tired of cooking the same old stuff like Rice and gravy and meat. We live in Southern Louisiana so he like heavy food but I want to try something new. Can you give me some ideas????

My mom used to make Shepherd’s Pie for supper. It’s relatively simple and tends to go over well with men.
In a 9 x 13 pan, place a layer of browned hamburger in the bottom. Follow that with a can or two of cream of mushroom soup. Then, layer a vegetable (like corn or green beans), and finally top off with mashed potatotes. It may sound crazy, but it is delicious

Are Alligators still protected species in the US?

Jamie Oliver (famous British chef) is cooking Alligator in Louisiana – are they still protected in other parts of the US?

No, the American Alligator is now in the "least concern" category of animal conservation.

A combined effort by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, state wildlife agencies in the South, and the creation of large, commercial alligator farms saved these unique animals. The Endangered Species Act outlawed alligator hunting, allowing the species to rebound in numbers in many areas where it had been depleted. As the alligator began to make a comeback, states established alligator population monitoring programs and used this information to ensure alligator numbers continued to increase. In 1987, the Fish and Wildlife Service pronounced the American alligator fully recovered and consequently removed the animal from the list of endangered species. The Fish and Wildlife Service still regulates the legal trade in alligator skins and products made from them.
