New Orleans is famous for a few things - as Lil Wayne's Birthplace, for Drew Brees' right arm and *of course* for that scene at the start of Bradley Cooper's chef EPIC "Burnt" where he shucks his millionth oyster at Casamento's Oyster bar on Magazine St. However, perhaps more famous than all of that, is the cities hospitality and conviviality; never more on show than in parade season in the first few weeks of Spring - when spirits are high and many spirits are drunk, mainly out of plastic go-cups.
A bonafide essential of this time of year, is the seafood boil, whether it be crawfish (now, sadly, banned from sale in the UK due to DEFRA's controls on trapping signal crayfish), or shrimp from the gulf - the act of eating some lip tinglingly spicy seafood, supping down a couple of beers and listening to second line bands come into and out of audible range is a New Orleans rite of passage.
Our Shrimp Boil is probably about as close as you can get to that experience in the UK, and we're delivering them, seasoned with our own secret blend boiling spices, directly to you all summer, to make sure your Backyard Cook-Outs are more than just burnt sausages and hockey-puck burgers.
Included in the kit (pictured for 2):
Shrimp for two, or four people
Fresh Corn on the Cob
Smoked Andouille Sausage (Pescatarian Alternative available**)
"Decaturains" Seasoning (a secret blend of 12 herbs and spices - simply "throw it in the pot" and forget about it!)
Fresh Onion and Garlic
Instructions on how to prepare the boil (don't worry, it's easy).
All you need is a large stock pot - the type you might boil pasta in, a colander and 4-6 beers to enjoy it with.
Warning - Our boil is SPICY - not blow your head off, put the TP in the fridge spicy - but hot enough to leave your lips and fingers tingling.
Delivered directly to your door - Nationwide!
**Pescatarian Version includes Pineapple and Button Mushrooms
(Allergens: Crustaceans / Shellfish, Mustard, Celery, Dairy (butter only))
