Being born and raised in Louisiana and on Cajun Cuisine, it takes a really good recipe for me to write a review. Talk about easy. I cheated and bought the trilogy of vegetables so I didn't have to do the chopping so from start to finish, this recipe took only about 30 minutes. Rice was cooking while I was preparing this. And, it was even more delicious than it was easy. I used leftover crawfish from our Good Friday crawfish boil so I eased up on the seasonings, but I will use this over and over again. Next, I think I will try it with shrimp.
