How do I make Ocean Sauce, from Adolfo's in New Orleans

Just returned from a NOLA trip and had an amazing experience at Adolfo's. The Ocean Sauce can be put on everything, here it's on veal. I looked online for a recipe but doesn't look like it has ever been published anywhere.

My best guess, it's a rue, thickened with cream and has shrimp, crawfish, and crab meat. Would like to replicate this at home in San Francisco, but I'm sure I'm gonna miss a key ingredient or spice.

This is a clear case of wanting to bite into nostalgia, hoping to replicate the taste of Ocean Sauce so well I can hear the jazz music emanating from the Apple Barrel below...

Hi Chris, have you tried contacting Adolfo's to ask about it? I've had pretty good luck requesting recipes from restaurants, fingers crossed you do, too!
