This recipe has the trinity in it that is what makes it creole cooking. After reading Derf's review, I set out to find what other Creole recipes used for spices. I found most used garlic and either chili powder, red pepper or Tabasco sauce. So you might want to add 2 cloves of garlic and one of the other pepper spices to put a kick into this recipe. Let me know which pepper and how much you use.

This was really great and so easy! I used tilapia for the fish and served over brown rice. Rich and flavorful - loved it - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers

This soup was a wonderful starter for my Cajun/Creole supper that I served for ZWT9. Every bite of this soup was heaven. I loved the sweetness from the brown sugar. I used flounder and it was perfect for this light fish creole.
