Mardi Gras week is upon us and so we would like to celebrate with traditional creole, southern recipes. Go Buy Local has great deals to help you find ingredients you need to celebrate Mardi Gras weekend!
A flavorful pot of gold: Crawfish, Andouille Sausage, and Cajun Spices! Boiling crawfish is a Louisiana artform- something that smells like Louisiana’s southern style.
Andouille Sausage Jambalaya with Shrimp
The combination of all rich spices with a delicious surf and turf mixture. It is always best when it’s fresh! Find your local market for the best produce and support local businesses!
Cajun Bloody Mary
Can’t have the best brunch without the best drink! For a pretty presentation, fasten together a lemon wedge, shrimp, olive, and bacon on a skewer. Or make it simple and dip the rim in brown sugar for a sweet zing. However, if you're too hungover from the party, try one of the many Twin Cities' restaurants we have deals for!
Fried Catfish Po’Boys with Spicy Remoulade Sauce
Po’Boys is a classic meal for Mardi Gras! This recipe uses catfish; however you can substitute catfish with whatever fish/meat you like. Save on your local meat choices at places like Von Hanson's in St. Paul, with our deals. Po’Boys are a perfect way to get creative and explore the possibilities!
King Cake, Filled Two ways
“The traditional Mardi Gras King Cake has two filling options: A gooey cinnamon-pecan or a kicked-up cherry bourbon cream cheese. Either way, this easy recipe is sure to please!” – Lemon-Sugar
