    Excellent recipe I've made a couple of times. Wonderful flavor and was a big hit at my last dinner party. Anxious to make it again!

    My husband loves this dish and likes it pretty spicy. I usually just add some cayenne, which gives it the heat without altering the taste too much. I make this a lot, and when I have Dungeness crab leftover from cracked crab, I'll toss that in. Delish!!

    Loved this! Nice change of pace. Swapped creole seasoning for cajun. I don't like tom sauce so I left that out completely and I didn't have raw shrimp on hand (raw would be best) so I used pre-cooked and added them at the end. I also added 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning for seafood flavor that I missed because of using pre-cooked shrimp. This was easy and delicious.

    Excellent dish and not at all difficult to make. I made this for my dinner party and it was a big hit. Like the previous reviewer, I added Old Bay seasoning and cut down on the cayenne. I made it early and simply heated it just before serving. A keeper and will add it to my permanent recipes. Delish!!

    Love, love, love this recipe. I've made this quite a few times now and the only change I make to it is to reduce the amount of shrimp. Three lbs. of seafood for 4-6 servings is just too much in my opinion. No insult intended to those who are accustomed to this amount of protein. I also add some cayenne because my husband wants everything to be spicy.

    I omitted the crab meat and it was still delicious.

    Wow! This was better than the étouffée I had AT a creole restaurant! Mine was a touch thick and I just added a bit more wine and broth and...did I say wow? This one went into my keep pile.

    Delicious, but pricey to make so I used this recipe for a special dinner. Made with jalapeno corn cakes, delish!!! Will definitely make again!

    I made this tonight and it was great. i did not have dry white wine so I used ginger ale and a squeeze of lemon instead. I also did not have shrimp or crab so I used chicken but everything else was the same

    Wow this is good! Expensive, but great for a dinner party or special occasion. Served with creole tomato salad and Bananas Foster for dessert-a Naw'leans treat
