A high-protein diet can help build muscle, which comes in handy for fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Cajun specialty meats at Chris' Specialty Meats. This Groupon is valid at the Baton Rouge or Prairieville locations.
Chris' Specialty Meats, recently lauded by Best of Baton Rouge, has churned out creative and traditional Cajun meats and fare for more than 19 years. Brother and sister Chris and Twyla Lachaussee, who can trace their Cajun history in Louisiana back more than 100 years and each other's faces while wearing a blindfold, prepare fresh, ready-made meals and meat ready for cooking on a daily basis.
The chicken sausage ($4.99 per pound) serves as a star in a stew show, the crab meat pie ($8.99) disappoints nosy sweet-toothed children, and the crawfish etouffee, bathing fish in butter, pepper, and lemon ($13.75), provides a hot entree or piece of impressionistic wall art. Stomachs can also be sated by hot tamales ($8.25 per dozen) while watching Chris and Twyla reveal trade secrets in a "How to Debone" video ($19.99). Check out their entire menu here.

Chris and his staff craft the specialty meats and homestyle sides every day, ensuring that delectable portions of stuffed quail, pork tenderloin stuffed with cream cheese and bacon-wrapped jalapeños, and seafood gumbo arrive at patrons’ tables fresher than a ripe banana’s newest dance moves.
