"A great new interpretation of a New Orleans classic that combines Asian flavors to make a VERY tasty appetizer. The mayonnaise is great on sandwiches and amazing on a tuna fish salad or sandwich! Maria Elena is having an Asian meal & this is what she is serving for an appetizer with other odds & ends. Didn't allow for cooling time.(Use Emeril Lagasse's Essence or Creole Essence / Bayou Blast for the Essence seasoning) Emerils.com This may not be hot enough for a few of you - so why not add some of your magic potion and make it hotter; some hot chile pepper?"

"Ooh, this was Delicious!! I split the recipe in half no problem. I think I would split the mayo recipe in half even if I was using the full 2lbs shrimp as well. I cheated on the mayo and just added the flavor ingredients to already-made Hellman's! Still the mayo was delicious!! And the leftover mayo will be a wonderful addition to tomorrow's sandwich :). I also used black pepper instead of white. On the shrimp, I subbed a dash of cayenne for the crushed red pepper & this worked out fine. I was impressed with how flavorful these shrimp ended up with only being in the 'soup' for 4 minutes! Will make this again; Thanks for sharing! [Made & Reviewed for Unrated Asian Tag]"
"This was very tasty, indeed. A little of this mayo goes a long way - you will have extra. This dish was not hot at all. This would make a great salad with added onions and celery, perhaps other veggies, either over lettuce greens or combined with cooked pasta. Thanks for posting."
"This silenced the table other than the oohs and aahs last night! Absolutely wonderful!! I made this according to directions, tried to anyhow, but ran out of low sodium soy. So i used 1/4 c low sodium soy and 1/4 cup regular soy and omitted the additional salt. It was perfect!I Served it atop butterleaf lettuce with a side of avocados/tomatoes drizzled with a homemade balsamic vinegrette. A very memorable meal, and one that will be repeated quite often. Thank you so much for posting, Manami!!"
