Cajun French: la laitue (lā la-tū) – lettuce
Tonight was the first night in almost two weeks that we were able to sit outside and enjoy the evening. The heat has been unrelenting and energy draining. To celebrate the somewhat cooler weather, we decided to have shrimp remoulades as an appetizer. We had boiled shrimp earlier in the week and had some left so our appetizers were ready quickly. We watched the sunset as we enjoyed our shrimp remoulades served in martini glasses.
Mais C’est Bon!!
- 8 lg boiled and peeled shrimp
- 3 red leaf lettuce leaves, chopped
- 2 Tbl remoulade Sauce
Divide chopped lettuce between two martini glasses.
Place one tablespoon of remoulade sauce on lettuce.
Place four shrimp in each glass.
Enjoy with a cold beverage of your choice.
