August 21, 2015

The Lt. Governor's annual tourism summit concluded yesterday afternoon, in a manner consistent with the phrase “Only in Louisiana”. Our organization invited the four candidates for Lt. Governor in this fall’s election to participate in a debate, fielding questions specific to tourism. A big storm was moving through and, 20 minutes after we were seated for lunch, the power went out. In a room full of 600 people. The hotel staff was astoundingly resourceful, serving lunch by flashlight, and finding a generator, microphones, and spotlights for the stage. The debate went on and, with no air conditioning, was hot in more ways than one.

Blackened Redfish

This is one you want to cook outside, unless you have someone on hand to fan the smoke detector, because blackened gonna smoke. Here in Louisiana we like redfish, but any firm white-fleshed Gulf fish will do. Or even - gasp - chicken.
