I'd love to have the recipe for the Shrimp Eddy at Gumbo's North Restaurant
in Georgetown, TX.
Well, I can't find a recipe specifically for "shrimp eddy" from Gumbo's North
Restaurant, but I did find something that might work.
Gumbo's menu is at: Gumbo's Menu
The "Eddy" appetizers are described thus:
CRAWFISH OR SHRIMP EDDY
served with hot herb-buttered toast in a creamy tarragon sauce
Gumbo's has several locations, and a review of the Austin location is at: Gumbo's Review
There is a photo there of the shrimp eddy and this description:
Jumbo shrimp sauteed in a creamy tarragon sauce served with toasted
garlic bread. The buttery garlic bread and mouth watering sauce is what
makes this dish a huge hit.
There is also a Gumbo's in Denver, Colorado, and I found a website that
had a recipe for Gumbo's Crawfish Eddy at: America's Cuisine
Try the recipe found there(below), substituting jumbo shrimp for the crawfish.
The cream tarragon sauce is the key to this dish. This recipe calls for
toast points, but you might want to serve your shrimp eddy with garlic
Yields: 2 servings
1 oz butter
6 oz crawfish 80-100 ct. tail meat
5 oz alfredo sauce
2 t green onions, sliced
2 t parsley, fresh chopped
2 t tarragon leaves, dry or fresh
1 1/2 oz dry white wine
1 t lemon pepper
1 T blackened spice
1 t parsley, fresh chopped
3 toast points
• In a hot sauté pan, add butter.
• Add ingredients in the order listed in recipe with exception of
1 teaspoon of parsley.
• Stir to blend and heat on medium heat until it reaches the boiling point.
• Garnish with parsley.

Dear Uncle Phaedrus -- Can you find the recipe for salt-rising bread
from the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma establishment known as the Crescent
Bakery. In the 1940's and 1950's the Crescent Bakery, now probably
defunct, produced a highly fragrant, intensely flavored salt-rising
bread day in and day out. Standard recipes for salt-rising bread pale
by comparison. The Crescent Bakery excelled in consistently producing
this very temperamental bread. Also, it would be hard for me to request
the recipe for the orange-ginger baked chicken offered at Goodies To Go
of Lexington, Massachusetts because I currently don"t have a facebook
Sorry, I cannot find even a mention of the salt rising bread from
Crescent Bakery in Oklahoma City, OK. I'll post your request for
Regarding "Goodies to Go", I have a Facebook account, but that doesn't
allow me to post a request on Christine Murray Kouhaila's Facebook page.
Only people who she has "friended" can post on her Facebook page. However,
anyone can access her public Facebook page, whether they have a Facebook
account or not, and anyone can send her a message by clicking on the

I sent her a message asking about the orange chicken recipe from "Goodies
to Go." Perhaps she will respond and perhaps not. I haven't had much
success with making requests this way. If I hear from her, I'll let you
