Recipe by Chef ladyinblue3

I first had this dish in New Orleans. Many years later I finally came up with this recipe. If you like things spicier add more cayenne pepper or hot sauce to your liking. This is a large recipe as I make it with my students so it needs to feed a crowd. This could also be made with other seafood or chicken. Serve over hot rice.
