The fried Alabama shrimp platter
These Alabama Gulf shrimp are some of the juiciest and freshest you'll find. Not much could make this popular seafood any better – other than a crispy, golden coating made from cornmeal, flour, buttermilk and just the right amount of salt and pepper.
Although Kowaliga is known as the go-to catfish restaurant near Lake Martin, these fried shrimp are considered the cornerstone of the menu – it's a dish that everyone seems to love. Served with a piping hot side of fresh hush puppies, this shrimp platter is always a winning dish.
Kowaliga's catfish squealers are whole catfish, farm raised in Mississippi, battered in cornmeal and fried crispy and golden brown. Served with 2 hush-puppies, lemon, green onion and choice of seasonal sides.
