This is like a little taste of New Orleans. Growing up very near there, my Wife and her mother would make frequent trips into nearby New Orleans. This is one of the many dishes made at home by my mother in law, while my Wife was young. It's a favorite in our house. Maybe it will be a favorite in yours.
