A take on a New Orleans favorite, the star of the show in this classically French dish with a Vietnamese Cajun twist is the beurre blanc sauce. While the shrimp and baguette are delicious, they’re mere vehicles for the deep, savory flavor and butteryness of the sauce featuring Flavor Inspirations Vietnamese x Cajun Style Seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, fish sauce, and garlic powder.
