The original recipe I followed was an Emeril's recipe. I have tweaked the recipe to my husband and my taste, so now it is a little different than the original recipe. It is so simple, easy yet has a robust of flavors. It always pleases! All guest I have served this recipe to have loved it.

I made this recipe in November or December and I think I found it on your page, but never reviewed it so I am reviewing it now. Restaurant quality recipe, very very very good, even the pickiest eaters in the family loved it. I make it so often now I have the recipe memorized! We have added scallops to it as well and they always come out wonderful.
