Binging with Babish: Shrimp from Forrest Gump Part I

  • Published: 03 July 2018
  • Bubba Gump Shrimp doesn't have to be associated with a horrible chain restaurant in Times Square - it can be the fullest realization of Bubba's love for the fruit of the sea. Creamy shrimp salad, crispy coconut shrimp, luscious shrimp gumbo - join me as I embark upon the first few dishes on the illustrious list dreamt up by everyone's best good friend. And I managed to do it without even a single Forrest Gump impression!

                I took this to the next level. Got shrimp from my father, who lives in South Alabama. His main shrimp source is from Bayou la Batre.

                Your gumbo looks excellent. One thing we did different with ours was adding gumbo filè (I think it is powdered sassafras?) diced tomatoes (if using canned we drained the can first.) and oysters. My grandmother, mother, and myself all use the same recipe yet our gumbo tastes different. It's about the roux.

                              I can just hear Isaac Toups being pretentious and arrogant about the gumbo.

It either or, never both. The sausage is too bold and you won't be getting much of the shrimp flavor. Plus no one put the rice in after, thats just as bad as putting your cereal and after your milk
