Recipe Tip

What’s in a name? Creole or Cajun cooks will tell you plenty! While both use plenty of peppers and onions in their foods, Creole cooking tends to favor dishes with more butter and cream, like this roux-based shrimp skillet. Cajun concentrates on intense spices to create a down-home signature taste.
