    The family loved this recipe. Will definitely make this again. I personally can’t have the Cajun seasoning but it was still super yummy for me as well with basic salt and pepper.

    My Family of 6 LOVED this! I need to make a bigger batch next time, they were all wanting more. 4 teenagers, need I say more?

    Tried this a few weeks ago as this is fairly keto – I had to make my own Cajun seasoning as I can’t really get it here in the uk. OMG this is the nicest caulirice dish I’ve made so far. I was about to just right off liking any of them but I ended up making 5 portions and had it daily. Making again with some yellow sticker caulirice later! My only request is to ask your web person to enable a metric conversion for people outside the US. Thanks Christine

  • Fantastic! Perfect for my gluten free girls! Everyone loved it. Making it again tomorrow for my mother-in-love’s 85th birthday.
