Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is the recipe of 95-year-old Opal Gimbert of Natchitoches, Louisiana, a wonderful Cajun cook and friend of Jack Hollenshead, Jr., the Editor of this cookbook, for the last 50 years from his years in college at Northwestern in Natchitoches.. She shared this with him many years ago and told him these were really good with fried fish. As he was doing the final edits for this cookbook, he was saddened to learn that she had died in her sleep at 95 1/2 on April 17, 2010.
