I had crawfish tails and Don had chicken. Can't speak for his, but mine was excellent- thick and hearty with lots of crawfish, celery, tomato and spices. I asked for the heat to be jacked up, and I got it - a nice, sit-up-and-take-notice cayenne glow in the first bite that didn't abate till I gave up, bloated, halfway through a portion that could single-handedly have relieved hunger in Africa.
And just in case that wasn't enough, the waitress brought us a bottle of
"Cajun Rush Infinite Heat" sauce. Ingredients: Cayenne, Asian and Habanero
peppers with vinegar, onion, garlic, capsaicin [I'm assuming this means
"extract"], herbs and spices.After tasting it, I put a little- there wasn't
need for much- in one side of the plate and mixed it in; the results were
phenomenal. A significantly higher heat level with the distinctive habanero
glow, and the slight tang of extract in the sauce tasted alone wasn't
evident at all when mixed into the creole. Needless to say, I bought a
bottle for the home collection...
