"This is awesome and I will make it again. We all love seafood!!"
"I'm making this for our Canada Day dinner. We love spice and seafood. I just don't add quite so much hot sauce! And a note to LBrouse - try googling "homemade spice mixes" and you'll find several for Cajun seasoning."
"This sounds wonderful! But what's a good substitute for "cajun seasoning"? Or what is it comprised of?"
