Beloit College dining services serving up some shrimp, gumbo in support of Bayou’s fishermen
Get your gumbo, and crawfish, and jumbalya (and maybe even some beads) on Wednesday night in Commons.
Beloit is one of only a handful of colleges participating in a nationwide event that evening that is intended to support, and spread appreciation for, the Gulf of Mexico fisherman putting the seafood on many of our tables.
“America’s Night Out for Gulf Seafood” is being organized by Dine America magazine. Peter Kraemer, head of dining services, says the college was invited to join up after the college’s fish vendor mentioned the event.
He says he was happy to participate in an effort aimed at reminding diners that the nets are back in the water, post-BP oil spill. “We’re happy to show our support, and use this as an opportunity to do something fun,” he says.
Tomorrow night's menu will include:
Cajun Rock shrimp and grits
Gulf caught MahiMahi with roast garlic crawfish cream or pecan butter
Red beans and rice
Fresh green beans
Boiled new potatoes
Sweet potato pie
