A taste of Louisiana

While we were on the way back to Jones Junction we found a little place called Nott's Corner. It was just a hole-in-the-wall seafood joint in Lake Arthur, La. The magazine said "just look for the
giant crawfish". We found what resembled a crawfish and stopped by expecting the best. We were not disappointed.

In spite of all of the many choices, I chose the "Catfish Irene" which is fried catfish covered with crawfish etoufee'. This dish is similar to one I have had at The Landing in Natchitoches called "Saucy Catfish". The only difference between the two is the style of etoufee'. Here is the prepared dish with its stuffed potato; just the insides of a baked potato prepared with cheese, sour cream, etc.

This is my plate after I demolished it. If I had ordered some bread, the plate wouldn't have even needed to be washed.
