Praise for The Louisiana Seafood Bible: Shrimp:
"It is as useful and as informative and engaging a narrative as I've seen anywhere on this subject. The recipes are fun to read, in part because they present a true picture of how average people-not chefs, not foodies-cook and eat."
-Michele Anna Jordan, PressDemocrat.com
