Chef Isaac Toups | Cajun Queso & Peel & Eat Shrimp (New Orleans, LA)
Chef Isaac Toups, Bravo TV’s “Top Chef” season 13 “Fan Favorite;” owner of Toups Meatery in New Orleans and author of Chasing the Gator – Isaac Toups & the New Cajun Cooking (Little, Brown) loves finger foods for game day snacks. Isaac’s Cajun Queso, also known as crab fondue, is more of a béchamel sauce with all the components of fondue. As for his peel & eat shrimp, Isaac says “Boiled shrimp are one of the easiest ways to feed a mess of people in a hurry. I figure around a half-pound per person. If you’re watching the game at home with a small group of close family members, feel free to scale this down or just do as we do in Cajun country and have a pound per head.”
