I thought this was a fairly good start but bland as is. I added about a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, a few dashes of tobasco sauce, salt and black peppper. I think after that it was a pretty good dish ~ about 4 stars.

This recipe is great! Very versatile! I made it with just crawfish once, and just shrimp once. The only thing I added was 1/2 sweet red pepper. It ws very simple to make, and even with a whole stick of butter - it's not too bad calorie-wise. WW pts - 6 when you break it down into 8 servings. This recipe is added to my book! Thanks Chef!
