  • My husband made this for me tonight. We skipped out on the white pepper (didn't have any) and instead of cayenne he used "cajun seasoning". It was delicious, and the perfect level of spicy! - 2/21/13

  • I don't think I'll be making this one again.. My husband & I love spicy food.. this way beyond spicy! I don't know what it was.. Neither of us could even finish our serving. It smelled great while cooking, very easy to make.. Maybe I'd try it again with less cayenne pepper! - 10/1/09

  • I loved thisd reciepe. I usedc it to make blackened talapia. I didn't have the cayenne pepper, so it was really more of an herb crusted blackened talapia rather than cajun. Still extremely good!! - 4/18/09
