The US Gulf Coast is known for its amazing seafood. Deep South states – Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and Florida – all border the Gulf of Mexico and there is an amazing culture that has sprung up around seafood. Mardi Gras, Crawfish Boils, and huge festivals are held every year and draw hundreds of thousands of visitors all anxious to try a taste of the Deep South. I lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for years and picked up quite a few recipes while I was there. And the good news is that because the world has become more connected, you can find all the ingredients in Japan and other countries to enjoy the tastes of the Deep South.
Southern Fried seafood is not only delicious in it own right, but it can be used as an ingredient in other dishes such as Oyster Po’ Boys.
Enjoy this wonderful meal with tartar sauce or hot sauce, lemon wedges, and wash it down with a soft drink or a cold beer. French fries, potato salad, coleslaw, hush puppies, or potato chips are all great sides that complement this authentic Southern dish.
