Here, seven New Orleans-inspired dishes to make for Fat Tuesday.
1. Emeril’s Muffuletta
The muffuletta is the quintessential New Orleans sandwich of cured meats, cheese and tangy olive salad piled onto a sturdy Italian loaf.
2. Shrimp Étouffée
Étouffée—from the French word for smother, stew or braise—is a classic Cajun dish of shellfish (or sometimes chicken) served over rice.
