Fried Pickles, Boiled Crawfish, and Grilled Shrimp!


Charlene and I are trying our hands at boiled crawfish! It is quite a bit of work for a bite to eat.

We must be in the South! For dinner tonight we had fried pickles, boiled crawfish, and grilled shrimp! We have never order boiled crawfish before. Our servers had to give us a lesson on how to break the crawfish open to eat them. Honestly, boiled crawfish are a fair amount of work to get to eat one bite. They seem to be a good food for eating slowly! The people of Biloxi take their crawfish seriously! It is a very popular menu item and right now they are in season.

The fried pickles were surprisingly good. A bit too salty, but I always enjoy eating pickles. It is fun to enjoy a local independent restaurant and eat the popular foods in the area!

It is also fun to go into local grocery stores. The unique foods so popular in nearby New Orleans are quite popular here in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Ole Miss is the popular state university, although both LSU and Alabama are quite close too.
