I’ve had a few viewers comment that this recipe turned out too salty. If you use my homemade cajun seasoning (link below), then it will turn out perfectly delicious. If you use a store bought cajun seasoning blend, which most likely contains much more salt than I use in my blend, you should start with a small amount, taste, and continue to add to your liking.
