    Too much seasoning for sea bass  -  23 May 2013


    This was delicious and I did make a few changes. I left out the creole mustard, adding in about 1 1/2 tsp emeril's bayou blast. The crabmeat I used was a fresh, pasteurized product, thus it had no liquid -and therefore wasn't salty, I also used fresh shrimp, instead of a canned product I didn't use the parsley either...this was a great recipe, one that we will be having again soon! For those who couldn't figure out what to do w/ the cream...try reading step 2 in the directions...if you still can't figure out what to do w/ the cream...just face it you probably never will.  -  06 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was super easy to make and was very very good. I will definitely make again and will pass this recipe on to friends.  -  16 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
