Striped Bass with "Gumbo"

We did this dish for an Abita Beer Dinner. Abita is based out of New Orleans so I thought it would be cool to re-do a New Orleans classic. The brown sauce on the bottom is a gumbo that was then strained into a very nice smooth sauce. On top of that there is a micro brunoise of Okra and the holy Trinity along with grilled shrimp and andouille. On top of the fish is the seeds from the okra pods that were marinated in tabasco for 2 days.

  1. This was my favorite dish at the Abita dinner. The marinated Okra seeds were amazing! Loved the texture and the bite from the Tabasco!
