Seafood Social

Not sure why we came up with the idea but a few Neighbors and I decided to throw a fall Seafood feast-

Starters-
Boiled and Chilled Shrimp, Raw Oysters, Boudin Balls, Charcuterie, Tuna Chevice and French Bread




While I was Chargilling Oysters


Another person was making Oysters Bienville (on top)


And while all that was going on I had BBQ Shrimp in the Sous Vide and then the grill and Green Lightning Shrimp



After all that food we retired to comfortable outdoor seating for Libations and good conversation.

Just Vote- What if you could choose "none of the above" on an election ballot? Millions of Americans do just that, in effect, by not voting.  The result in 2016: "Nobody" won more counties, more states, and more electoral votes than either candidate for president.

    That is some banquet right there.  Way to offer quite a broad selection and in Central Texas, as well.  Congrats.

    Wow that looks amazing! When you don’t have access to seafood that is a feast you imagine having.

    That was a grand idea. I love the chargrilled oysters. I’m also a fan of the way you served them. Looks like a feast all the way around.

    Nice spread!  

    Talk to me about the BBQ shrimp in the SV.  Deets plz.  

    Neighbor the NOLA Chef had the recipe but basically like this (but after we made the first batch it I doubled it)

    1 sticks butter
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon oregano
    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    1 tsp Kosher Salt
    1 tsp black pepper
    12-15 shakes of Louisina Hot sauce of your choice

    I chose Sous Vide to try but also since the Sous Vide machine I use belongs to another neighbor who wont use it so I wanted to involve her so she would see its use.

    Anyway I put split ~100 21/25 Shrimp in 4 Sous Vide Bags,  Poured 3/4 of the BBQ sauce above into the bags, Use Vac Sealer to pull air and seal.  

    Dropped them in the 125 degree water bath for 15 min, cut the bag open, reserved the Sauce, then dumped shrimp onto the (gas) grill (in a basket) for another 5-7 min.  Microwaved the reserved sauce and the leftover from making it as a dipping sauce.

    Those shrimp were the hit of the event.  We did hold a bag back and into the freezer for later.
