This is an adopted recipe The original chef comments: "Supermarkets stock several kinds if Cajun spice blends. Check the label to make sure the brand you choose doesn't list salt as the first ingredient, you can off set the the benefits of the dish by adding too much salt." Round out this meal with rice pilaf and a green vegetable or a spinach salad.

I loved this cooking method. It was so easy, took no time and the presentation was beautiful. I used tilapia and it was awesome. This will become apart of our rotation. Thanks for posting!
