This recipe IS wonderful, just like Khandi said! It is extremely easy to prepare and very quick. I did cut back on the pepper, I used 1 t. black, 1/2 t. red and 1/2 t. white. Even at those amounts is was a little too hot for my husband, so if you don\'t like hot foods, go easy on the pepper. You can always add more. At the reduced amounts it was just right for me. Thanks Khandi for this great recipe! Susan

I made this the other night, and found the seasonings to be way too strong for my palate... so I had to adjust by adding a good bit of regular milk to it to dilute the harshness of the seasonings. This resulted in a much thinner creamsauce, I'm sure. However, the dish was very tasty. I served it as a side dish for steak /mushrooms and roasted asparagus. Will make again, DH raved over it.

I made this with 2c basic white sauce and added Old Bay seasoning along with salt and black pepper. For the cheese in the dip I added about 1/2c of an Italian cheese blend and the parmesan on top. Very good.

I've made this several times and it's been brilliant every time. I start out by roasting some vegetables with a little olive oil and black pepper in a casserole dish, and then, when the seafood mix is ready, I pour it over the vegetables and add the parmesan cheese to finish it off. I've also made it with whitefish instead of crayfish tails, which gave it a little more body. Either way, it's tasty and easy.

I tried this recipe and we could not eat it, Too much pepper taste. I had to throw away alot of Shrimp and Crab. If I ever try it again, Iwould leave over half the pepper out.

I made this last night for a girls' get together and it was GONE! Everyone asked for the recipe. I omitted the crab & white pepper (didn't have) and added a little garlic powder to taste. Great recipe, will definitely make again!

The flavor was wonderful but I cut the peppers in half and it was still too hot. I will make it again but cut way back on the peppers. Gloria

Really spicy, and really wonderful! I wasn't able to get crawfish, so I doubled the shrimp. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, using fresh herbs and serving over pasta. It's very rich, so there was a good bit left over...but I'm definitely not unhappy about that!! Thanks for sharing, Khandi!
