This is one of my very favorite "company" dishes. It's worth making for the sauce alone! I got it from Paul Prudhomme a long time ago (one of his books, not him personally!) and tweaked it slightly. Don't let the long list of ingredients intimidate you - it's really simple to do, but plan on beginning at least 2 hours before you want to serve. Serve with long grain rice, and some biscuits or good french bread. The flavors are so bold, a nice fruity red wine would be perfect accompaniment.
