John Stage almost always leaves something out in the recipes he publishes so they are just a little off. In this case, I think he just wrote "creole seasoning" when in fact, this stuff tastes most authentic with a spice they sell around here in the restaurant and in stores called "Cajun Foreplay." Use it generously. Either way these are delicious, especially served with Dinosaur BBQ Cocktail Sauce (Dinosaur BBQ Cocktail Sauce). Not for wimps!
