Great Mardi Gras Recipe?

I want to do some cooking for Mardi Gras tomorrow, but have been having trouble tracking down a killer recipe for something authentic other than jambalaya or gumbo. I'm thinking something like a blackened chicken with pasta, but all those recipes are loaded with cream and butter. It may be a lost cause, but are there any good recipes out there that scream "Mardi Gras!" but won't be a total diet buster?
