    Honestly this is spot on culturally for Mardi Gras. Louisiana is known for rice production and New Orleans has a very strong Asian community and we all know the Gulf has crabs. Chef John, you may have invented a new Louisiana Classic.

    Sidenote: The trinity that Chef John used isn't the trinity that is used in Louisiana. The trinity is these ingredients in equal proportions: yellow or white onion, green bell pepper, and celery. Chef John gussied it up to work in this recipe and I'm okay with that. :)

    I don't want to analyze it too much, but I think that what I love about Chef John is the realness--I don't know if he scripts these but they don't feel scripted. He knows exactly what he is doing and is in control of his ingredients, so it's natchy. Nuff Respect

    Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
    Rev 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
    2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private [ Greek, idios, its own] interpretation. (KJV)
    2Pe 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture at all is becoming its own explanation.(CLV)
    So the prophecies of this book, the book of Revelation, are not of their own interpretation. They must be understood in the light of all the rest of the prophecies of scripture. In fact the very first verse tells us that this entire book is “sign ified,” and the significance of every symbol in this book must be understood only in the light of the rest of scripture. We are simply not at liberty to guess and speculate about the symbols of this book. Nor are we permitted to guess what parts are signified.
    I had a very esteemed brother once ask me, ‘What parts of Revelation do you think are symbolic?’ At that time he was very grateful when I told him that according to verse one, the entire book has been signified, and the entire book is written in symbols and proverbs and parables.
    Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and sign ified it by his angel unto his servant John:
    The sum of thy word is truth, and signifies that truth
    That is the nature of all scripture. Not one word of prophecy “is of its own interpretation,” but is rather all sign ifying some deeper spiritual truth. That applies to virtually every story and every historical event recorded in God’s Word. That is why these verses are so true:
    Psa 119:160 The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.
    1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples [ Greek, tupos, types]: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
    As hard as it is for us to believe, the Old Testament scriptures were never intended to be understood as a mere history lesson. It is all to be taken as spiritual admonitions. The events recorded in the Old Testament did not happen for the sake of the people of that time, nor were they even written for the people of the Old Testament. They are all types and lessons for us. They all “signify” us:
    1Pe 1:12 Unto whom [ the Old Testament patriarchs and prophets] it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
    But “signified” words hide from the multitudes their real meaning while leading the multitudes to believe they understand. For example Christ made this statement:
    Joh 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
    Joh 12:33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.
    Joh 12:34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
    Joh 12:35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
    Joh 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
    Joh 12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
    Joh 12:38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
    Joh 12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
    Joh 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with [ their] eyes, nor understand with [ their] heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
    “They could not believe.” That is the effect of “signified” words. The Jews knew that Christ had said he must die, but they did not know what was the significance of His death. That is why they said, “We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, the Son of man must be lifted up?” Christ speaks only in parables:
    Mat 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
    That is a profound statement which should settle, once and for all, the question of whether the story of Lazarus and the rich man is a parable; “without a parable spake He not unto them.”
    This book of Revelation is a book of parables. What is the purpose for speaking in parables? The reason, which I have pointed out so many times, is:
    Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. [ the multitudes of believers in Christ]
    Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
    Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
    Mat 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
    Mat 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, a nd should be converted, and I should heal them.
    Are the parables still functioning as they were intended?

    Chapter 11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
    8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.
    9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
    10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
    11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
    12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

    Chapter 66:
    15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
    16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
    17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

    The holy trinity is onion,bell pepper & celery. There are no substitutions that retain that moniker. Green onion is used as a flavorful garnish in Cajun & creole cooking. Jalapeño is not used in either cultures dishes. Cayenne is,but it would never be substituted for bell pepper in the trinity. It seems silly in a way to take such a hard stance on a term for a grouping of vegetables,but when you misuse a term that is part of a proud heritage on a global platform,it creates misinformation that works to destroy that heritage. Watch your words please.
