"The flavors in this recipe are really good. However, I would change the recipe a bit to not include the andouille butter. I found it a bit unappetizing to look at. Not sure what I'd do for a sauce but I'm come up with something."
"This is a wonderful recipe! The Andouille Butter sauce is outstanding! Definitely one of our "favorite" recipes..."
