This is delicious and easy to make! I got the recipe from the New Orleans School of Cooking and have made this numerous time for dinner parties. Enjoy!

Made this for a party...turned out pretty good. I doctored it a little bit with 4 cloves of garlic, a few generous dashes of hot sauce (recommend tabasco, crystal, or louisiana brand hot sauce), and a squeeze of lemon at the very end for some brightness.
