This recipe was a good one! However, the only thing is with the shrimp stock, it gave it a more shrimpy taste. Now the original Fondeaux @ PAPPAS doesnâ€™t have that shrmpy/flavor, so what I think this recipe is missing is a little lemon juice. I put some over my portion before eating & that shrimpy taste was gone it actually fused all the flavors and made it more so like the ideal flavor seeking. So maybe add 2 tbs of lemon juice to the recipe. I also added some other cheeses like Parme, Mozzer, Colby as well as the Monterey. I made it twice, on the second go round I also added another tbs. of flour it was thicker but next time I will do 4. Plus we ate it with fetti noodles, thatâ€™s why the thickness is so important. All in all this was a GREAT! replica of PAPPAS Fondeaux, as all the other recipes I get here.
This is a great dish- my husband loves it and we order it each time we go to the restaurant. However, I will onoy 1/2 to 3/4 cup water or shrimp broth next time I make it, as it had way too much liquid in it. Also, the recipe should state "fresh spinach" as I used chopped, frozen, and it was way too much. This is a great dish.
If this is truly Pappadeux's recipe, and it sounds like it is, it is great. One of the few things I miss about Atlanta. Can't wait to try it.
