I grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast and my father loved to fish, crab and shrimp when he had time off. We are of Cajun decent, so I am privledged to have a lot of wonderful recipes passed on from my family and friends. This is a wonderful dish. I make it in small dishes and freeze the extras to have on hand.
