I decided to serve this as a stew versus throwing it over rice. It was excellent. I particularly liked how easy it was to make. However, I did use between 1 and 2 tablespoons of cajun seasoning. I don't know if mine had lost its oomph, if Emerils is much more mild than Zatarain's, or if I just prefer spicier food. However, with the seasoning increased, it was fantastic and didn't even need pepper sauce.
