If you aren't going to a neighborhood spot Wednesday, try these instead.

NEW ORLEANS — Chef Kev has a couple of great local-inspired recipes in honor of Eat Local Day. 

Creamy Parmesan Shrimp


  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled, and deveined
  • Creole seasoning 
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan, freshly grated 
  • 1/4 cup basil, thinly sliced
  • Green onions, and lemon wedges, for serving


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season shrimp all over with Creole seasoning and salt. When oil is shimmering, add shrimp and sear until the underside is golden, about 2 minutes, then flip until opaque. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and add butter. When the butter has melted, stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add cherry tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook until tomatoes are beginning to burst then add spinach and cook until spinach is beginning to wilt.
  3. Stir in heavy cream, Parmesan, and basil and bring mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.
  4. Return shrimp to skillet and stir to combine. Cook until shrimp is heated through, garnish with more basil, green onions, and squeeze lemon on top before serving.

Honey Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli
