I agree with marielasauvagesse. Shrimp and grits is NOT traditional Louisiana food. I really like John Besh, but shame on him about this. Give credit where it is due. We have many wonderful shrimp dishes in Louisiana, but this is not one of them.

It's nice to see New Orleans/Gulf Coast ingredients used in refreshing ways, but these dishes are in no way traditional New Orleans cooking as suggested in this segment and John Besh knows it. Shrimp and grits is lowcountry Carolina food! Please don't misinform people about the complex and beautiful tradition of southern foodways!
