Or, as old-timers say in South Louisiana, “shwimps.”
Since Rene Delachaise has become such an integral part of the Sentinels series, I thought you might find it interesting to see what his boat, Dieu de la Mer, might look like. It’s a commercial shrimp trawler, and was a major setting in RIVER ROAD. You see a LOT of these in Plaquemines Parish, where Rene lives, and in Terrebonne Parish, the setting of the upcoming Wildlife Wardens series as well as the novella PIRATESHIP DOWN.
(By the way, I just saw the rough cover for PIRATESHIP and it is awesome! Stay tuned for a cover reveal in the next couple of weeks.)
Anyway, here’s how shrimp are caught. About 60 percent of all U.S. shrimp comes from coastal Louisiana.
Do you like shrimp? (If you’re allergic, so sorry!) What’s your favorite way to eat it? I’m a simple diner–give it to me boiled, seasoned, and the makings of a good cocktail sauce. In New Orleans seafood restaurants, you don’t get bottled cocktail sauce; you get some ketchup, some horseradish, and a bottle of hot sauce and mix your own!
