New Orleans BBQ Shrimp – From a Houston Institution!

 by Tanji on August 27, 2014 and posted in Brennan's of Houston, Danny Trace, Houston

 
When I think of fond food memories, one place immediately comes to mind in Houston - that's Brennan's. This place is an institution, and the guy who's responsible for many of the beautiful memories you'll make these days yourself is the Executive Chef, Danny Trace.
 
Chef Danny is a Louisiana native and known for dishes that incorporate local produce, more ofthen than not recalling a certain flare for his Cajun and Creole roots. At the time, Chef was actually hand-picked by Brennan's co-owner to re-open and guide the landmark kitchen at Brennan's after months of rebuilding from Hurricane Ike.
 
You could say kitchen wizardry is a dominant gene in Danny's DNA. He's as confortable preparing four-star meals in the nation's most acclaimed restuarnats as his father was in the family kitchen, and his grandfather and uncle behind military stovetops.
