    Manami's Note:

    Have looked through so many recipes and was very surprised I didn't find this particular one posted. This is Emeril Lagasse's recipe from Television Food Network, 2003. It is simple and has very easy-to-follow directions, I hope you all enjoy this as much as we do! I'll also include ingredients for Emeril's Creole Seasoning. That recipe is from "New New Orleans Cooking" by Emeril Lagasse and Jessie Tirsch, Published by William and Morrow, 1993.

      Excellent version of one of my favorite dishes. I grew up in Louisiana and don't remember ever having such a wonderfully tasty version of this dish. A+

      I made this tonight and it was exactly what I was looking for!! I adjusted the red pepper to be on the milder side for our own tastes, and used 2 cans of diced tomatoes in place of the 2 cups of chopped. Fantastic, thankyou for posting, and thankyou Emeril!! Also, I didn't make his "essence" but used those herbs while I was cooking.
