My husband loved this recipe...and it was so easy! I took other reviewers' advice and decided to spice things up a bit. I added 1 tsp of cajun seasoning 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and a dash of cayenne. It had just the right kick. Read More

We modified this recipe from the getgo as we are on a low-carb diet - but we just LOVE it. Instead of 1/2 cup cornmeal I use 1/4 cup Keto crumbs 2 tbs cornmeal and 2 tbs seasoned bread crumbs. I also use a tiny bit less salt and use olive oil instead of regular vegetable oil. It's definitely one of our favorite recipes. It's simple and quick to make and looks very elegant and it's easy to make in quantity so it's just as great to serve for company as to make for just the family. Yummy! Read More

Pretty good once it is spiced up per other reviewers (cayenne red pepper flakes and Cajun/Creole seasoning). Not anything amazing but something a little different to try. Don't forget to give it a little squeeze of lemon juice! Read More

Very good! I had trouble with the pecans at the end because they burned but it was probably my oven. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks. Read More
