Gulf Coast Seafood Tour – New Orleans, LA to Biloxi, MS
We heard this same passion every place we visited during our trip. From the coffee roaster in Long Branch, to the shrimper in Biloxi, the processing plant next to the boat yard, and to a young chef who returned home to open a successful restaurant in Ocean Springs, there is a common theme; they love their Gulf Coast and want to share its history, bounty, and culture with others.
No one speaks more to this than the chefs of the region who embrace this incredible seafood in their restaurants. They are inspired by the heritage and flavors of the region; the dark rouxs and traditional Creole and Cajun dishes, yet nothing is more delicious than a simple plate of freshly harvested steamed Gulf shrimp and plump briny oysters with a Mignonette sauce or a dish of beautifully blackened redfish or perfectly seared Gulf grouper.
