A Dozen Recipes Every North Carolinian Should Know-- Part 5: Calabash Shrimp

CALABASH SHRIMP

Calabash is a tiny fishing town in Brunswick County, right on the South Carolina border.  Only about 2,000 people call Calabash home, but they boast they are "The Seafood Capital of the World."

And, there seems to be almost a fish restaurant for everyone of the inhabitants.

Calabash-style means perfectly fried seafood with a light, crisp, ethereal battered crust.  It's the crust that makes it so good.  For many vacationers to the Wilmington area and Myrtle Beach, no vacation is complete without a trip to Calabash.  Plus, many seafood restaurants in both area s offer calabash-style seafood (especially shrimp).  And, of course, you also need a plate of piping hot hushpuppies.

And, there's more to come.
