This recipe was only OK for me. It didn't seem to have enough flavor, or at least enough of the right kind. The pecans seem to overpower the cajun.

This recipe was very quick, easy, and very tasty. My family said it was like eating something from a restaurant. It made a "middle of the week" dinner a treat. I served it with wild rice (fro...

this was really great! used a mix of cajun spices.

I really liked this recipe and the family loved it as well. I used a little extra parmesan cheese because we love cheese. The flavors were great and I will definitely make this again.
