Paul Prudhomme, the famous New Orleans chef who made redfish so popular it almost became extinct, has died.
Prudhomme's Big Easy restaurant, K-Paul's, has become a national landmark. He rolled out blackened redfish which became an obsession around the country, and introduced turducken to the world.
He authored 9 cookbooks and his own cooking show on PBS. He also created a line of kosher seasoned spices.
Paul died after a brief illness. He was 75.
