this was great! i would definately make this again. the only thing i would change is use less lemon. it was a little strong for my taste. but other than that was amazing! easy to make and easy clean up as well.

Just made this for the first time tonight. I didnt have fresh tarragon so I used dried, not too much thougt just a few sprinkles. Also threw in a can of oysters, juice and all. After simmering with tomatoes I added a 1/4 cup of soy creamer (any creamer would work) to make it a bit more creamy without being heavy. Next time I will make it a little bit spicer since I like things on the spicer side. This recipe is very delicious, easy and very satisfying!!

canned tomatos, fresh tomatos. Fresh seafood, frozen seafood. Can't go wrong here. A very simple to prepare meal that is awesome. Good for a meal at home or to serve guests. My kids don't love it, but then they only like seafood grilled or deep fried.

Flavorful easy recipe. I have tarragon in my garden so love finding uses for it. I only used shrimp for the seafood which was fine. Next time I will use a bit less cayenne pepper.

excellent and easy! I did some substituting (no leeks - too expensive, no tomatoes - husband dislikes, added chopped potato and mushrooms) and it was delicious! I think you can pretty much substitute anything and it will be great! Loved that there was only one pot to clean!

Given the ease of making this, I'd call it exceptionally good. If I were making a dish for company, I'd want to include shellfish in the shells like clams or mussels. My only change was to use canned tomatoes with fennel (and sprinkle some chopped italian parsley on top of the finished dish). Were I using fresh tomatoes, I'd add either some fresh fennel with the leeks or a tsp. of fennel seed. My husband ate two servings, but he usually eats two servings of CL dishes. Served with toasted ciabatta rolls and a salad with marinated artichokes and kalamata olives.
