In this episode of “Binging with Babish,” a cooking series where home chef Andrew Rea recreates famous foods from films and TV shows, Andrew demonstrates some of the many various ways to cook shrimp, as discussed by Bubba in the classic 1994 romantic drama film, Forrest Gump.
“Bubba Gump Shrimp doesn’t have to be associated with a horrible chain restaurant in Times Square – it can be the fullest realization of Bubba’s love for the fruit of the sea. Creamy shrimp salad, crispy coconut shrimp, luscious shrimp gumbo – join me as I embark upon the first few dishes on the illustrious list dreamt up by everyone’s best good friend. And I managed to do it without even a single Forrest Gump impression!”
