Crawfish, alligator, cake and beauty queens

On Saturday, the Louisiana Seafood Board hosted a large-scaled seafood boil for the Miss USA Contestants at Nottoway Plantation. There was boiled crawfish and shrimp, crab cakes, white beans, alligator from the reigning seafood king and queen from Hot Tails (their website was done by our good friend Cayle Gray btw), and so much more.

The 51 contestants grooved down and even got involved with one of the best zydeco bands we’ve ever heard. It was an all-around great event. Many of them were cool and comfortable. They weren’t trying to be anything that they usually weren’t. Sure they put on for some cameras, but hey, that’s all a part of the job, right? We even know something about that (shameless plug in our own blog here).

There was food for days, fun days and of course, a lot of beautiful people. This is going to be a great week. What’s next? Just wait and see.

  1. The 2012 King and Queen of Louisiana seafood are none other than Keith and Nealy … This Cajun style restaurant has a beautiful view along the bayou at historic Roberts Landing. … These crab cakes are bounded by a crispy remoulade that leaves people dreaming … From mirlitons to alligator, these unique and rare.
