South Louisiana-Yes, it is HOT
First fishing trip of the summer Friday. Conditions were right, tide was right, weather was right...but we fished hard and did not catch any redfish which is very odd for the spot we were fishing. That spot is usually money after a string of weak tides. Usually see thousands of redfish crusing the banks...

But shrimp season just opened and I'll tell ya what-it's amazing how many shrimp you can catch with $20 dollar bills!!! We bought some 10-15 count shrimp right off the boat that had been out shrimping the night before for $3.50/#. Decided to do some Cajun boiled shrimp Remoulade lettuce wraps.

I made the remoulade fresh saturday morning to let it sit in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours for the flavors to come together.

After boiling the shrimp and peeling, time to make the wraps!
Pile the shrimp on, then the remoulade...

Thanks for the remoulade sauce recipe Kieth. Did you buy the shrimp head on, or headed? Just curious about price diff between your area and here in NC.

Do you let the shrimp cool before making the wraps? I assume so.

Do you season the shrimp, when cooking, for this recipe?

Sounds like a refreshing meal.

Thanks one eyed jack.

We bought them head on.

Got the seasoned water boiling then put the shrimp in. when returned to boiling, boil for 1 minute then shut fire off and soak for 4-5 minutes. drain and quench with cold water to stop cooking and to cool the shrimp.

That looks crazy tasty. I think it could count as a salad, right? If Minnesotans can count frozen Snickers, Cool Whip, and apples as a salad, certainly this can.

Thanks for the remoulade recipe. We don’t have Dukes but we do have Kewpie Mayo. It’s amazing.

Sounds like all my fishing trips since I bought this boat! I guess I forgot how to catch fish. That shrimp looks so good. Would be so nice to get fresh shrimp. This frozen stuff been using kind of bland if you know what I mean. Man I love Red Fish.

Well Keith, if you managed to stop at 3, you have much more self control than I do. Those look and sound absolutely amazing. As you said, fresh, cool, and what I can only imagine would be a perfect Summertime meal. Very well done my friend.
