I used a pound each of tilapia and shrimp. This was quick and easy to make. I also used old bay instead of creole seasoning as I didn't have any. We all enjoyed this.

I made this a couple of weeks ago for my family. They loved it! It tasted like the real deal! My husband literally gave it thumbs up. Walked in and gave the thumbs up sign because it was good. That's a keeper for me!
