A Spoonful of Sofrito: West Coasters Try Cajun Meats

A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

West Coasters Try Cajun Meats

Sofrito Lovers,

Deep fried gator!  Fried frog legs! Crawfish!  These are the delicacies of Cajun/Southern cooking!

So many people think that the only proteins you can enjoy are fish, beef, pork, or chicken.  Many people feel that once you stray away from the four options you're entering "disgusting" territory, well nothing could be further from the truth. 

As a foodie who loves Cajun/Southern cooking, I can assure you nontraditional proteins like gator, frog, and crawfish are amazing.  With proper seasoning and preparations, these proteins can have incredible flavor profiles.  In some parts of the world, beef, pork, and chicken are shunned and considered disgusting. It's all a matter of perspective and open mindedness!

Check out the BuzzFeed video below for honest reactions on Cajun/Southern cuisine.  I hope it inspires you to get out there and try something new!

Watch, learn and go taste for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!
