“New Orleans is jazz, easy livin’, the blues – and ‘When the Saints
Come Marchin’ In’. It’s Bourbon Street, St. Charles Avenue, and
a street called Desire. It’s the ghosts of Satchmo, Lillian Hellman,
and Tennessee Williams [and Truman Capote]. It’s Mardi Gras,
strippers, strong coffee, bars that never close, live oaks, and
magnolias. It’s uptown society and downtown artists. But then
New Orleans is also terrific food… really wonderful food as it
is evolving in this truly magical city…”
~ Lee Bailey, in Lee Bailey’s New Orleans

Shrimp Maque Choux Salad

Lee Bailey's New Orleans:
Good Food and Glorious Houses

by Lee Bailey with Ella Brennan, 1993, Clarkson N. Potter


"There is a popular traditional corn and tomato salad in the Deep South
called 'maque choux'. The version here has some wonderfully spicy
shrimp added. By itself, it would be a light and tasty luncheon dish."

1 quart cold water
1/2 large lemon, cut in two
6 tablespoons salt
1/4 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 1/4 pounds shrimp with their head on
1/4 cup olive oil
2 large green bell peppers, diced finely
2 large red bell peppers, diced finely
Kernels from 3 ears of corn
1 medium red onion, diced finely
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon white pepper, or to taste
Juice of 1 large lime
Bibb lettuce and radicchio leaves

Place water in a large, deep pot. Squeeze the lemon juice into it, and
add the squeezed lemon. Add the salt, hot sauce, cayenne and garlic
and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 1
minute. Allow shrimp to cool slightly in the boil, then drain and peel.
Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a deep skillet over a medium-high flame and sauté
peppers, corn and onion until just wilted, about 5 minutes. Do not
brown. Stir in cilantro, salt and pepper, then add the lime juice.
Mix. Add shrimp and toss. Serve on Bibb lettuce and radicchio
leaves. Serves 6.
