Very tasty. Used gulf shrimp & chicken thighs. Nice complex spicing. Rice is mushy only if you overcook it or it sits too long. So it's not a dish that holds well appearance wise but taste wise it's still good. My guests were very happy!

Mushy rice, bland flavor, (I kicked it up quite a few notches with hot sauce). For the amt of work that went into this dish, not to mention the expense, it was a waste. Emeril must be leaving out a key ingredient for proprietary reasons. Find another recipe!

I may not be the sharpest knife in the kitchen drawer, but didn't know whether to use cooked chicken and shrimp. Went with the precooked and all I can say, smellin' those kitchen smells and all do make me hungry.
