Cajun cuisine has evolved over time by adapting to what is available from the land and sea. Prior to being ousted from Canada in he 1700’s, Acadians fished in the North Atlantic. Moving south to Louisiana, they fished what was in the bayous and the Gulf of Mexico. They adapted from cooking with potatoes to cooking with rice, which grows abundantly in Louisiana. Bell peppers replaced carrots, black and red peppers were introduced as well. Spanish, Native American, and African American influenced the evolution of Cajun cuisine into what it is today.
