“Delicious over rice. The original recipe ingredients are for 1 tablespoon Cajun or Creole seasoning - this seemed like a lot for us, so adjust per your taste. The original recipe also used Creole mustard and I used Dijon mustard (reducing the amount that was called for). Recipe source: Bon Appetit (February 2007)”
