|Fried shrimp loaded potato at Cou-Yon's in Port Allen (across the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge)|
It's a huge potato with sour cream, cheese, green and red onions, jalapenos, and of course fried shrimp. The shrimp were seasoned really well, and the tails were removed so I could eat a little faster. (Why doesn't everyone yank those tails off before they fry their shrimp??) A cup of BBQ sauce is on the side for dipping your shrimp or covering your potato.
And there's bacon. Of course there's bacon! Bacon and shrimp? Of course!
I ate the whole thing, potato skin and all. It was that good!
And yes, this did end up being my dinner.
Did I already mention the staff is really friendly? The staff is really friendly.
TIP: Cou-Yon's also has a food truck, so check their web site for where to find it.
