Loved the spice, the butter tames it just a bit. The portion of the sauce is just a bit too much. I made some shrimp without bacon to avoid to much of a greasy taste and make it just a tad lower cal intake. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i thought it was good ,however the recipe on the show had dry cajun seasoning in it that does not show up on the recipe. this could possibly thicken the sauce slightly more and enhance the flavor item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved it but my wife thought it was to spicy.the portions were way off. I cut it in half and it still made enough for 6. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dinner for a party of four and had an incredible amount of leftovers. Portions are off but overall it's a very good pasta. I lost the taste of the beer in the sauce, the pasta was pretty spicy and I only used half of the recommended habaneros. I did add all the adobo sauce from the can, however. Sauce seemed a little thin so I added a little heavy cream. Also, the amount of butter is a huge overkill. One stick worked well for us. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We prepared the sauce over homemade pasta and it was delish! The sauce does make a very large volume but I used the rest of the sauce the next day to marinade chicken breasts in a ziplock bag for grilling, which was perfect with a spicy malbec. There is a lot of heat to this dish already so the addition of the habanero's could be neglected. Also instead of using whole sticks of butter, I just used enough butter (1 tbsp to coat the pan and habaneros.The bacon wrapped shrimp was one of the best parts and we each enjoyed 3 a piece but wanted more. We will definitely make this dish again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor has a good complexity so it doesn't get boring. The quantity seems a little off. The listed quantity was for 6 servings so I made half and still ended up with lunches for the week (not complaining. Also since the sauce has a good flavor that's more than just heat it's good on wings. I thickened it up with a bit of brown sugar and flour and painted it on some chicken... delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is fantastic!!!!!!!!I was afraid of the calories in the butter, but it was so worth it. You can taste the different flavors in this dish, you get more than just heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
