In honor of the 68th annual Delcambre Shrimp Festival, we are celebrating with some delicious recipes from Louisiana Travel, The Catholic Foodie blog, and also Coastal Living Magazine. Now, I'll be the first to say that I love a good old fashioned shrimp boil, but sometimes I like to get a little fancier, everything from Cheesy Shrimp and Grits to Coconut Shrimp and Rice Pilaf

The Foodie blog also lists tips on how to not over cook your shrimp, and how to make shrimp stock for those special dishes. Yum! Enjoy all the food, carnival rides, entertainment, and hospitality at the Shrimp Festival, then go home and cook some of these classic Louisiana dishes for yourself! A few of my favorites are below, but let me know what your family specialties are!

The Delcambre Shrimp Festival will be held August 15 - 19 in beautiful Delcambre, Louisiana, ya'll!
