    Just the right amount of spicy. Easy enough for weeknight cooking. I did add salt which it didnt call for.

    This was awesome! I used a cajun seasoning, not a creole one (just because that's what I had) - and I subbed spinach for celery because I don't like celery. Served over basmati rice seasoned with saffron - so good! And maybe it was the seasoning I used, but it was not too spicy as some others have mentioned. I did find it needed a bit of salt which I added just before cooking was complete.

    This was very spicy, but really good. So if you aren't into too much spice, I would cut back. I used the Tony Chachere's brand recommended. The portion was also very big.

    This was really quick and easy to make. I did not time it, but easy to do on a weeknight. This was really good! However, I am a spice wimp. I used the Tony Chachere's as directed, this was too spicy for me and the kids. But it was so yummy we ate it anyway. Next time I will make it will less of the creole seasoning. I had the leftovers for lunch today and it was still very good. We are adding this to the Keeper List.

    This didn't have much flavor, but it did have a nice amount of heat. I am used to shrimp creole having a more tomatoey sauce with a lot of rich flavor. I followed the recipe exactly. It looked pretty, but something was just missing. I won't be making this again. There are better recipes out there.

    Extremely easy and very tasty. Too spicy for little kids, but the "Créole" part suggests that. Will add to the rotation!

    Not bad not great but it was easy. I think next time I might even add a little more of the Creole seasoning to make it spicier. I had used Emeril's seasoning and I just don't think it was spicy enough. I too also added salt it needed it at the table.

    This was easy, fast and tasty! I used a microwaveable pre-cooked rice which made it super fast. It needed a little more seasoning, so I added some extra salt, cayenne, and a bit of Frank's hot sauce to top it off. Didn't have fresh thyme, so I subbed about a tsp. of dried, and it worked just fine. I'll definitely make this again. The three star is only because I am an accomplished cook and so this would not be up in my "special occasion" collection. Great for a quick and tasty weeknight dinner!

    Fantastic! I actually added a little more creole seasoning than what the recipe called for. And to make it gluten-free, I used 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch. Would serve this again for sure!
