      I have a one word description for this meal, Diana, WOW!! We felt as though we had been whisked off to New Orleans for supper! Absolutely terrific! I prepared exactly as directed (without the beer intermission), served over hot white rice and used a miniscule amount of the file. I wouldn't be at all surprised to find this recipe served in better resturants. Thank you so much for posting this fine recipe!

      i don't know who princess is but it is obvious that something is wrong with her taste buds! im working on making this for the second time right now and just wanted to thank you for this great recipe. it is amazing how spicy 1/2 t. of red pepper makes this. im not huge on spicy food so i added a little less this time. my dad- who likes spicy though loved it. thanks again!
