Binging with Babish: Shrimp from Forrest Gump Part I

4 155 919 Views769

    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!

    22. Shawn Czarniak

      Sacrilege has been committed you didn't use Old Bay when you did your cocktail shrimp. Also as a southerner I'd like to add if you don't like Old Bay or want to try something new try Everglades seasoning

    23. 智安shaun

      Why do I watch these when I'm hungry

    24. ATG

      Babish! Try gumbo but instead of rice, use POTATO SALAD. You're welcome from Louisiana.

    25. Evanski

      Shrimp sandwich?

    26. george coulter

      Damn near choked on my beverage when you said, "Throw these nasty shrimp shells out." Don't even joke like that you evil man. I live alone so I woulda' choked and it would be on your head. Damn Babish! :)

    33. Crimson Barrel

    34. Benjamin Bourg

      My mama’s gumbo is one of my favorite meals in the world. It is truly a soul cleanse for me. But your trippin if you don’t add chicken to your gumbo also.

    38. Edward Hyena
