TRY Louisiana holiday dishes like our Seafood stuffed MIrlitons

Christmas is a time to celebrate with friends and family, reflect on the year’s blessings, and honor culinary traditions by pulling out your New Orleans holiday recipes. No matter where you live, you can enjoy traditional holiday seafood recipes, and we're sharing our recipe for a classic Louisiana dish, Crab & Shrimp Stuffed MIrlitons, which is featured on Deanie's Holiday Take Home Menu.

We want to bring our time-honored traditions to your home this holiday season!

We won’t tell!

One of our favorite dishes on the Deanie's Holiday Take Home Menu is our Shrimp & Crab Stuffed Mirlitons. Mirliton, pronounced Mella-ton, originated in Central America and are also referred to as vegetable pears and chayote squash. They have a delicate flavor and can be prepared the same way as a summer squash.

Our take on the classic dish is always a crowd pleaser.  You can order it from us today, or make it yourself using our holiday recipe!
