Artichoke and oyster soup is a New Orleans favorite, and just about everyone and his or her mother has a favorite recipe for it. Pureeing the soup also gives it a silky texture, and since the oysters are added at the very last minute, they are gently poached to perfection.
There is something immensely satisfying about the combination of simple greens, toasted nuts, fresh oranges, and goat cheese. If you like, add thin slices of grilled or broiled chicken breast to this salad for a complete meal.
This signature salad is served at Emeril's New Orleans and at Emeril's Orlando. It has been on the menu at Emeril's New Orleans since day one. Try it and you'll see why folks keep asking for it after all these years.
