  1. This made for an incredibly fast, tasty dinner last night. I will say to be careful what type of creole seasoning that you use. I used Tony Cacheres, and what I have been finding in other recipes as well, is that it often makes the dish way too salty when a large quantity of creole seasoning is called for. In this case, the mayo was very salty. This, however, is not the fault of the recipe and I would suggest making your own creole seasoning or being sure paprika (vs salt) is the main ingredient in your creole seasoning. Made for ZWT9.
  2. As some of the locals say, "I love my swimps." Well, I love my swimps, too. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.
  3. Well, this made for one nice easy quick dinner. I did cut back to about 3/4 cups lettuce, thats what I had on hand, loved the sauce. Too bad I only made 4, because we all wanted seconds. Made for 1-2-3 hits.
