Almost Instant Chicken Salsa Soup

Shrimp and oysters wrapped in bacon and grilled

Sidesaddle Angels: Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp and Oysters

  There’s a restaurant nearby called the Steamboat Warehouse in Washington, Louisiana. For years, one of chef Jason Huguet’s award-winning signature dishes has been Sidesaddle Angels with a Remoulade-style sauce. It’s shrimp and oyster wrapped in bacon.
