1/2 Photos of Seafood Gumbo - New Orleans Style

TOOLBELT DIVA's Note:
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...
