90 Day Fiancé’s Yara now loves Cajun cooking and recently shared a video on social media of her father-in-law serving up a shrimp boil dinner.
Yara Zaya of 90 Day Fiancé was once skeptical of America, but she’s been embracing her new home, most recently with a good old-fashioned Louisiana shrimp boil. There was a time when 90 Day Fiancé fans thought Jovi’s friends and family were mean to Yara; however, they’ve since come around to the sassy Ukrainian and are happy to introduce her to life on the bayou. Yara has learned to welcome the help she gets from her husband’s family, especially when that help is a delicious meal.
When Yara first came to America, her then-fiancé’s parents were skeptical of the 90 Day Fiancé star and what her intentions were for being with their son. They initially bought in to the stereotypes about women from Ukraine and were worried that she only wanted to marry Jovi for a Green Card. But over time, they’ve gotten to know Yara and have embraced her as part of the family. Though Yara wasn’t a fan of her new home at first, she’s since grown to love Louisiana and its cuisine.

Yara recently shared clips on her Instagram Story of her spending time at Jovi’s parents’ house. She giggled while filming raccoons walking around on the roof, showcased the beautiful Louisiana sunset and shared a video of her father-in-law Monty cooking up a shrimp boil. “My dinner, Monty will show y’all how to boil shrimp,” Yara commented, using “y’all” like a true Southerner. Monty may not be 90 Day Fiancé star Jovi’s biological dad, but he’s the one who raised Jovi, and that’s all that matters. In the video, Monty showed off his cooking skills and demonstrated how to make an authentic (and delicious) shrimp boil.
In a special shrimp boil pot, Monty boiled up onions, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and smoked sausage with a broth containing shrimp boil seasoning, lemon juice and lots of garlic. (He noted that shrimp boils usually contain corn, but his grocery store was sold out.) After 20 minutes, he removed the “extras,” added more seasoning to the broth and then tossed the shrimp in to boil for four minutes. After four minutes, he added extra salt to the broth and let the shrimp sit for another five minutes off the heat. Then it was time to strain the shrimp, mix it together with the veggies and sausage, and enjoy.
When Yara first came to America and met Jovi’s parents, the 90 Day Fiancé star didn’t like Cajun food, so it’s great to see her embracing the cuisine of her new home. Even without the corn, Monty’s shrimp boil looks delicious, and Yara’s lucky to get a personal master class in the art of shrimp boils. 90 Day Fiancé‘s Yara may have been iffy about Louisiana and her in-laws at first, but she now welcomes their help, just as long as they’re not too pushy about it.
