    Beautifully presented in fine New Orleans style, this recipe appeared in the Spring/99 issue of Gusto Magazine, compliments of executive chef Richard Benz, Upperline Restaurant, New Orleans. A crisp chablis would complement this dish and prepare your palate for a delicious dessert of Bananas Foster. I have prepared Seafood Gumbo - New Orleans Style, served it to appreciative guests, eager to also enjoy the above mentioned dessert. This recipe serves rather a large quantity and is therefore suitable for larger families, or "company's coming" meals. Note: While the recipe stipulates specific quantities of seafood items, there is no reason why chefs cannot increase the quantities... to thicken the sauce. For instance, additional shrimp; add squid if you like.... Okra will thicken the "sauce" also...

      My DD has befriended a recently jobless homeless young man from St. Bernard Parish, LA, whose home was destroyed by hurricane Katrina. He hasn't had good Cajun food since he evacuated to Texas, and was missing it, so we invited DD and her friend to share this recipe with us. He said it was seasoned just right, and he ate every drop in the bowl. Considering the expert source, that's a high compliment for the recipe. We thought it was mighty tasty too, by the way. Thanks for sharing it.

      It was some of the best gumbo I have ever had or made. It is very easy to make, and I only added one additional thing, Craw Dads. Nothing better than the little river lobsters.
