mmmmm Yummy!, February 14, 2004 - 12:54 PM

My first time having this dish was when my friends father made it. I got the recipe, which was this exact one, and have made it a few times since. This dish is delicious, and always a hit. Hint, if you or others eating the dish can't handle spicy foods, then cut the cayenne amount in half. It will still provide plenty of flavor.

Seafood Bog, June 17, 2006 - 11:23 PM
Reviewer: Dave from where ever I want to be (hint: USA)
I found a similar recipe a few years ago and made it for my family and we all loved it. However, I can be a glutton and added a few items to where it became a Seafood Bog instead. I added Fresh mussels and steamer clams, and a store bought tray of "seafood mix" that consisted of cooked crab meat, baby octopus, calamari, and what appeared and tasted to be halibut. I served it all up on a huge turkey platter with fresh corn on the cob surrounding it, a side of sauted mushrooms and tossed salad. The wife and kids loved it, and there weren't any leftover to deal with. It would make a great dish to either make or take to the beach!!!
