Shrimp & Crab Creole

I love Creole dishes, as long as they are not to spicy, which seems to be the case when I eat it out. I usually give up on ordering it in restaurants and make my own.

You can adjust the spice in this one to suit your taste.

You can also substitute crawfish for shrimp in this dish.

Enjoy!
