Inspired by his time in Senegal, chef Sean Brock created this delicious, untraditional gumbo using dende (palm) oil, dried shrimp and fish sauce. Slideshow: How to Make Gumbo
Dried shrimp are available at Asian markets. Palm oil (also known as dende oil) comes from the fruit of the African oil palm. It adds a rich flavor and red color to this gumbo. Look for it at specialty food shops and on amazon.com.
Slightly sweet brown ale quells the heat of this spicy gumbo.
