Leave out the cumin and cayenne, and you have a perfect guacamole. Cumin smells like sweaty armpits to me, and is way too strong for guacamole. Keep it simple.

Excellent recipe. I love this one, and love the combination of the shrimp, tomato sauce, and cream.

This is a great recipe. I add a little heavy cream and cornstarch along with a half a cup of good white wine, which makes it much better.

Yum, this is a good, tasty starter recipe to add your meal rotations. For my tastes, I leave out the red pepper flakes and chopped peppers. Then I substitute 1 can of stewed tomatoes for the tomato paste, substitute nonstick olive oil spray for the 2 Tbls of oil, substitute cilantro for the parsley, and then add 1 can of mushrooms to the recipe....

The best thing about this recipe is that you can make it indoors, when the weather is too bad to cook outside on the grill. For my personal tastes, I leave out the cumin. But this is yummy.

It may taste okay, but the presentation looks like something my dogs spit up.

I loved this episode, and I wrote down all of the ingredients in the Lobster Sauce that was served with the seared scallops, from Cravings Restaurant. What a great recipe!

Aug 18, 2014 on

Everyone makes paella differently. My wife and I make ours with strictly seafood; no chorizo or chicken. We prefer to keep it healthy, with only fresh ocean ingredients. Being raised on the Gulf Coast, I prefer it this way. We buy fresh shrimp, mussels (PEI; Prince Edward Island), clams, scallops, and sometimes calamari. We add lots of saffron...

I love this recipe, but I omitted the cayenne pepper and hot sauce, for a more subtle ranch dressing. Five Stars!

This recipe is a good start. But why would you only use the shrimp head to make the stock liquid and then not include the actual shrimp in the recipe? This recipe is also missing the gumbo filet spice, which is essential for making a real gumbo.

Sounds like a great gumbo recipe, but where is the okra?! Every great Louisiana gumbo I have ever had, always has okra in it.

This is a good, standard salsa recipe that works very well. Add some fresh, chopped cilantro with both the stems and leaves, and it brings this recipe to life!"

Good recipe, but salsa does not need fat added to it. Leave out the olive oil; just spray the oven pan with non-stick olive-oil based spray. Then you have an award-winning salsa recipe, without all the fat."
