I enjoy cooking Cajun food, and this is more creole than Cajun. My daddy used to say that the only difference between a Cajun and a creole, was their roux. Cajun roux is more of a darker brown base, and Creole, is more of a tomato base added to a lighter roux.

(please note that recipe and picture are not my own, I do not remember where I got them from, but it's an awesome recipe, I wanted to share)
