  • Emeril's Classic Seafood Gumbo

    Emeril's Classic Seafood Gumbo

    You can't go wrong with this classic seafood gumbo, which is chock-full of shrimp, fish, and oysters swimming in a broth richly flavored with gumbo crabs.

    • Total Time: 2 to 2 1/2 hours

  • Emeril's Shrimp Creole

    Emeril's Shrimp Creole

    Shrimp Creole originated in South Louisiana where gulf shrimp are plentiful. The shrimp are simmered in a spicy tomato sauce and the dish is served over rice. It makes a great one-pot meal for family gatherings or potlucks.

    • Yield: 6 servings
  • Artichoke Soup With Poached Oysters

    Artichoke Soup With Poached Oysters

    Artichoke and oyster soup is a New Orleans favorite. Pureeing the soup gives it a silky texture, and since the oysters are added at the very last minute, they are gently poached to perfection.

    • Prep Time: 30 minutes
    • Total Time: 1 hour plus 15 minutes
    • Yield: About 3 quarts, 6 to 8 servings
  • Chocolate Mousse

    Chocolate Mousse

    Decadent and delicious and might just become your go-to dessert.  The recipe may seem complicated, but think of it this way.  You'll have four bowls for four components that you combine in the end.  Melted chocolate, sugar and yolks, meringue, and finally whipped cream.  Of course you'll want extra whipped cream for topping and plenty of shaved chocolate.

    • Total Time: 1 hour plus 2 hours and up to overnight for chilling
    • Yield: Enough mousse for one 9-inch 4-layer cake; serves 4 to 6 in dessert cups
  • Corn And Crab Bisque
    • Yield: 6 servings

    Basic Marinara Sauce

    Of course this is a perfect quick meal with pasta. But this is a basic tomato sauce that has endless possibilites.

    • Yield: About 8 cups, 4 to 6 servings

  • Peanut Sauce (nuoc Leo)

    Peanut Sauce (nuoc Leo)

    Traditional Vietnamese spring rolls are almost always served with this style peanut sauce. It has a sweet salty element that goes perfectly with the fresh flavors of the spring rolls. I suggest making this sauce in a double batch because it goes quickly. It will last in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
