Where Y'Eat: Fried Shrimp By A Different Name
A circuit of Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants in New Orleans serve their own renditions of a distinctive, twice-fried style of seafood that makes a refreshing change of pace from the local standard.
It goes by different names too -- salt baked seafood, salt and pepper seafood, Szechuan pepper seafood or rang muoi.
