Coconut Shrimp

Growing up I could always recall what was for lunch and dinner on any given Friday during the Lenten Season. Tuna salad sandwiches made their way onto the table for lunch even if I were to take a lunch for school. Dinners usually consisted of a fried catfish meal at home or to the...

behind the scenes
