The Best New Orleans Food and Adventures

New Orleans: a city filled with history, culture, Southern food and its fair share of ghost stories! There is something so special about the charming architecture and brass band music filling the streets of Nola. Cuisine from “the big easy” is big and heavy. Most regional dishes include seafood pulled right from the gulf. Food is often deep fried and commonly has a Cajun kick. Sounds pretty awesome, right!?!

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

This past weekend we had the opportunity to head to Alcomar, a neighborhood coastal-inspired seafood spot here in Austin. One of the dishes prepared for us in the demonstration was their Mango Chipotle Campechana. This seafood cocktail was light and refreshing dish that was perfect for the 100 degree heat. The dish had a nice mix of sweet, savory, and spicy and was served with homemade yucca chips. It is a perfect summer appetizer that was more filling than expected! Alcomar was kind enough to let us share the recipe with you!

Chicken Satay Recipe

Chicken Satay Recipe

Another recipe that we created on our Asian Tapas night were these Chicken Satay Skewers. The reason why we decided we wanted to have this dinner theme night was because it reminded us of eating all the street food during the night markets in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Thai Chicken Satay is the perfect snack because it is healthy, low carb, and totally scrumptious. Plus, one you marinade the meat, it grills up pretty quickly! This is also our go-to recipe for a quick weeknight meal.
