Unbelievable Fried Stuffed Crabs, Tugboat Jambalaya, Crab and Shrimp Julian, and Bayou Sorrell Toasted Crabmeat are just a few examples of the dishes that await in this third volume of The Louisiana Seafood Bible. Jerald and Glenda Horst take readers on a journey through Louisiana's culture and the commercial crab industry, from the fishermen to the factories to the grocery store shelves and finally to the dining table, where they present the best crab recipes on the Gulf Coast.
Jerald Horst worked with the recreational and commercial fishing and seafood industries for thirty years. A former professor of fisheries science at the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, Horst is the coauthor of Angler's Guide to Fishes of the Gulf of Mexico, available from Pelican.
Glenda Horst, the daughter of a commercial fisherman, was born and raised in Bayou Sorrell, Louisiana. She learned the basics of Cajun cooking from her mother and enjoys passing on the family secrets to her grandchildren.
