    Desperately seeking authentic Cajun/Creole WITHOUT RICE

    I know there will be those who will say "if it ain't got rice, it ain't Cajun/Creole", but there has to be a Southern Louisiana main dish out there that doesn't contain or is served over rice.

    Thing is, I'm not actually planning to cook it.

    What I am doing is writing a story about a New Orleans chef (who specializes in Cajun/Creole cuisine) who is cooking for a friend who is allergic to rice. (And a rice-free variation just won't cut it.)

    Specifically, I'm looking for a dish that smells close enough to Jambalaya so as to be mistaken for it at first sniff.

    Of course, if the recipe looks appetizing enough, I may just try it, even though I'm a lousy cook.

    Please and Thank You to the kind soul who can help me out...

    Indeed they do!

    Just after leaving here, I found a Cajun-centric site run by a lady folks call "maw-maw", and she let me know that Cajun Potato Salad had become a very popular alternative to rice in Vermilion Parish (about midway between New Orleans and Beaumont, right on the Gulf).

    I figured that, by the 24th century (the story is actually a Deep Space Nine fanfic), such a variation would be considered as traditional as the "pure" recipe.

    Thanks for the help!
