    Buster's friend's Note:

    A classic southern coastal dish. This version is from Chef Drextal Carter, of The Praline Connection in New Orleans. it was published n The Times-Picayune in anticipation of the French Market Creole Tomato Festival coming this weekend. I plan to make it when my own tomatoes & okra are ready (soon)! Use the freshest ripe red (or black or pink) robustly flavored tomatoes you can get.
