Louisiana’s white shrimp season opened Monday; the first fishermen returning to seafood docks reported no oil, no sheen, no tar balls. Read the opening day reports here (local news) and in the New York Times. Will you be eating Louisiana shrimp soon? I will. The Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board has detailed info on Louisiana’s seafood quality & safety monitoring–check it out. Frankly, I’m craving a big mess of fried shrimp, or some shrimp remoulade, or how about shrimp & okra gumbo?
