    I made this tonight and it was really great! I used only 1/2 a tsp of the cayenne pepper do to the previous warnings and it was not too spicy at all. This is mine and my husbands favorite dish at Bahama Breeze & it tasted just like it.. Would definitely make this again :)

  • Ray by ,

    We used a teaspoon of cayenne but still a little too spicy. I would cut that in half and it would be good. Also, add parm cheese to melt in before serving.

    Agree with @kimberly hewitt, tasty but it's as spicy as thai food IN Thailand! I suspect maybe it should be a teaspoon of cayenne and not a tablespoon?

  • kimberly hewitt by ,
