Simple to make, in one pot, this delicious shrimp dish carries the New Orleans flavor, including the punch of cayenne pepper. If you are not accustomed to a lot of spice, put only the cayenne pepper into the Creole seasoning mixture last, a little at a time, until it suits you.
The Creole seafood seasoning below is used for many things in New Orleans cookery, not the least of which is boiling crawfish, shrimp, and crabs. The seasoning makes the sauté spicy hot; French bread, torn right from the loaf, helps cool the palate. Use the seasoning to boil the crawfish used for garnish as well.
New Orleans considers brunch to be one of the best meals of the day, and Brennan’s is famous the world over for its magnificent brunch dishes. Eggs Hussarde is one of their signatures (look also for Eggs St. Charles andEggs Sardou), combining Marchand du Vin and Hollandaise sauces, toast, Canadian Bacon, eggs, and grilled tomato.
