LAKE CALCASIEU OFFERS ANGLERS CONVENIENCE AND GREAT FISHING

For decades, anglers from Texas as well as other Gulf Coast states have flocked to Lake Calcasieu, just outside Lake Charles, Louisiana, to sample its legendary fishing. Located a scant 2 1/2 hours from downtown Houston, Lake Calcasieu is close enough to be convenient, yet far enough to be 'exotic' for fishermen from the Lone Star State. Most often, Texas fishermen take their initial trip to Big Lake to "do something different." But, after that first foray, they are hooked and become regular Lake Cal fishermen’.  Here are a few pictures from last week and you can see them all by clicking here

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

Cajun Seafood Au Gratin

Ingredients

  • 1  pint heavy cream
  • 1  tablespoon fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1  tablespoon fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2  teaspoons salt
  • 2  teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground red pepper
  • 1  teaspoon white pepper
  • 1  cup chopped green onion
  • 1  cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 lb crayfish tail
  • 1/2 lb lump crabmeat (we use blue crab) or 1/2 lb white crab meat (we use blue crab)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheese (Jack, Swiss, and American work well)
  • 2  tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Directions

Pour the cream into a large heavy skillet or saucepan and place over medium-high heat.

The cream will rise before it begins to boil; just stir it to keep it from overflowing.

Once it begins to simmer, add the herbs, salt, peppers, green onions, and parsley, and continue to let simmer until it becomes thick, 7-8 minutes.

Stir in the shrimp and let cook 3-4 minutes, then add the crawfish.

Mix well and let cook 2-3 minutes.

Gently fold in the crab meat (you paid a premium price for it, so don’t destroy those precious lumps).

Let cook 2-3 minutes more, then add the 1-1/2 cups cheese and stir gently until it has melted.

Preheat the broiler.

Pour the hot seafood mixture into a large ovenproof dish or individual ramekins.

Sprinkle the top with the Parmesan cheese and glaze under the broiler.

Serve immediately.


My thought - "Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow."

Have a great week and remember “Ya shoulda been here yesterday”
