Huntsville’s best Cajun restaurants

Cajun cuisine is a style of cooking developed by the Cajun–Acadians who were deported from Acadia to Louisiana during the 18th century and who incorporated West African, French and Spanish cooking techniques into their original cuisine.

Crab, shrimp, catfish, redfish, oysters, sausage (especially Creole boudin, a highly seasoned pork and rice sausage, and Cajun andouille, a spicy smoked sausage made with pork and garlic), rabbit, chicken and smoked tasso (a dried, heavily smoked pork or beef seasoned with cayenne pepper, garlic and salt that’s used as an hors d’oeuvre or to season vegetables, gumbos, and soups) are staple meats used in a variety of dishes.
