"This sounds great! I'd love to try this, but I'm not that fond of shrimp...could chicken or something else be substituted for the shrimp?"

"Hi Marly,

Greek seasoning can be found with other seasoning blends at your market. It's actually labeled "Greek Seasoning" and usually lemon, garlic and oregano with a few other seasonings"

"Not a review. In answer to Marly's question - greek seasoning? We use Cavender's (all purpose greek seasoning) - very good."
