Yum! You could also make this strictly chicken or shrimp by adding 1 pound of the protein of choice. Looks so good. I love Creole food.

This came out terrific! But you forgot the garlic...I added with the onions, peppers and celery

So glad you liked it. Garlic goes in right after the onions, peppers and celery. I think you could even add more than 3 cloves. Can you ever have enough garlic? :-)
