Soft shells are never put in a bushel. They're laid out in a tray. Castnet Seafood in New Orleans East can likely get you as many as you like. ...

I recommend not putting anything on the outside prior to frying ... there's nothing that you can rub on the outside that can withstand frying for 30-50 minutes without burning. Just fry it naked on the outside, and sprinkle it with your favorite cajun/creole seasoning right after you take it out.

The ratio that I always use is three ounces of liquid for each ounce of pasta, regardless of the type of pasta.
8oz. of pasta (half pound) = 24 oz. of liquid (3 cups)
16 oz. of pasta(one pound) = 48 oz. of liquid (6 cups)
And so on ...
I like to make it with the little 7 oz. Mexican ...

Looking for a brand that's legit, not too sweet and sugary, or "glow in the dark" red. Something with a genuinely good flavor profile.
I'm assuming some of you will suggest some authentic asian brand that i can only find in certain stores.
That's exactly what i'm looking for....
