It's May 10 - National Shrimp Day. And
what a better way to celebrate than with this fun story. To set the
scene: It's the first day of culinary school in New Orleans, and
the chef instructor informs the class in no uncertain terms that
they must show up everyday in full uniform, including pressed and
clean jackets. One student, obviously more than a little
intimidated, asks "What if I don't have an iron?" A Cajun shrimper
(think Bubba Gump) proceeds to lecture the class with two excellent
pieces of advice on what to do -- including why Jim Beam is better
to use than Jack Daniel's. Plus there's even a love
interest. Read the complete
story by John Malik on Huff Post Food.
And to honor National Shrimp Day, here are 1,111 full shrimp recipes we've
indexed from our online sites; in particular, several of the shrimp
recipes from Ina Garten rated 4 stars or more.
