A Bucket of Fingerlickin’ Goodness

Some refer to it locally as the shrimp bag food trend, others the bucket– in Louisiana Cajun cuisine, where this is all rooted, it’s simply called the seafood boil.

These shacks will serve you with bags of shrimp, mussel, crab, or even lobster tossed and tumbled in a sauce of your choosing. Get ready to get messy, but don’t worry, it’s worth it.
