I omitted the salt and reduced the cayenne pepper to 1/4 teaspoon-- it was very good that way.

I have to say. I was pretty excited about this recipe. I was so excited I forgot to read the reviews, something I usually, and I also didn't even notice the rating. WAY too salty!! I saw the amount of salt and thought, that's a lot, but I never cook Cajun so I thought, I should stick to the recipe, I'm sure it's good. TOOOOO SALTY! I've been adding more water and trying to boil it out. Sad times.

Even without the cayenne pepper, we were unable to eat this. Too salty. : (

I didn't use any salt and I still couldn't eat it. Good idea, but YUCK

Agree- much too salty (I used only 1/2 tsp). However, the other flavors were tasty and it's a simple way to add some kale to a side dish. Would make with low-sodium chicken broth and no additional salt next time- maybe even double the rice/broth to spice ratio. Thanks for the recipe.
