This is a wonderful rich soup. I like to use crawfish, but shrimp will work equally as well.

I would say this recipe is just Ok. Despite liberal use of Balls Cajun Seasoning (my sister sends it to me from Louisiana)it was rather bland. I'm thinking it maybe would have benefited from some sauteed celery or green or red pepper? At any rate we did eat it and it was by no means horrid but for the amount of calories involved I won't be making again just not good enough. Read More

This was incredible. As usual I doctored it up with lots of Old bay Emeril's Essence and a lot more hot sauce (also used extra onion and lots more garlic). My husband and I absolutely crave it this soup. Read More

This is close to the best soup I have ever had. I spiced it up a little by using cheyenne pepper instead of pepper sauce. I also used smoked sharp cheddar cheese and the smoked cheese flavor really added to this dish. DELICIOUS!! Read More
