    Recipe Cajun Style Red Beans and Rice

    This dish is a staple of New Orleans cuisine and has as many versions as there are kitchens. After looking through the pantry I put together this version which is a satisfying one pot meal. Andouille sausage might be described as a spicy fat hot dog for those unfamiliar with it. Ingredients 8...

    Recipe Cajun Chicken Alfredo

    This is a lovely dish, a slight variation on the classic alfredo. Video posted here. With the seasoning I decided not to go heavy on the Cayenne, it's definitely there, just not in a blow-your-socks-off quantity. Chicken breasts x2 Olive oil Cajun seasoning (approx 50 g) 2 tbsp pap 2 tbsp gar...

    Cajun and creole seasoning: are they interchangeable?

    Can use cajun and creole seasoning interchangeably in dishes? I made this Emeril's Braised Chicken recipe today, and used cajun instead of creole seasoning because that's what I had at home. It tasted delicious, but I can't keep from wondering what kind of character the dish would have if I had...

    Recipe Cajun Blackened Grouper

    Actually, you can use any firm-bodied white fish. I’d never eaten grouper prior to making this dish in 2016 — I picked up two filets, and got sticker shock at the cash register. (Always pays to ask if prices aren’t posted. Duh.) But, okay, something new... Sizzle me good! It turns out...

    Gumbo - different approaches?

    It seems there are many different recipes for gumbo and some contain tomatoes although others rely on a dark roux to provide the sauce. Is there a difference between Creole & Cajun Gumbo? This isn't a quest for authenticity (no such thing really, as we all know) but about how those of you who...

    Recipe Paul Prudhomme's chicken and dumplings

    We usually cut this recipe in half as it makes 8 servings. Edited to add: I had mentioned this is Chef Paul Prudhomme's recipe in another thread, but forgot to note that in this thread after I was asked to post it. Seasoning mix 1 Tbsp salt 1-1/2 tsp sweet paprika 1 tsp white pepper 1 tsp...

    Recipe Tasso

    This is the recipe I use when making tasso, courtesy of Emeril Lagasse. Note that this is for 2-1/2 pounds and I usually make a minimum of 8-9 pounds at a time. I'll put that much in a 2 gallon freezer bag for the curing process. You can use tasso with all the spices on, but if you have a low...

    Recipe Cajun Style Stuffed Eggs

    Easy to make and they look pretty! I made my own Cajun seasoning but you could use a ready made version. The pea-shoots were grown on my windowsill - pop a few dried peas on some damp kitchen towel in a shallow container and keep the paper moist. You will have pea shoots in a matter of days...
