"I think we might be the only ones to try this that didn't really care too much for it. I can't quite put my finger on it, but this just didn't impress us. It looks like a lot of other folks have loved this recipe, so don't let my one "meh" review scare you away. It was edible...just didn't suit our tastes."

"I made a few alterations and doubled the recipe, it was a hit! I omitted the bread cubes and added shredded cheddar towards the end of baking. I used imitation crab and shrimp, another time shrimp & scallops all was very good."

"OMG this was sooooo good! I made this for my sister's birthday and I DOUBLED it, we love leftovers. I used two pounds of shrimp and a pound of bay scallops and no crab meat. I also cooked extra rice which I added after adding all the other ingredients."

On my second attempt, I added about one-half pound browned andouille sausage. It was even better if that's possible!"
