Oh...oopps! I didn't see the recipe on your blog when I left the last comment.

Oh my lanta... this looks so good! I think I'm going to make it next week for my grandparents. They are both from LA but they're living in San Antonio. They (and I) LOVE cajun food. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks for sharing.
