There aren't any Pappadeaux where I live now and this was always my favorite menu item. It tastes just like I remember. Really easy to make too - ready in just a few minutes since the seafood cooks so fast.

I think this is pretty close to pappadeaux (but it's been a while since we've been there). Either way, it's a fantastic recipe. Expensive with the seafood in it but worth it for special occasions.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!! So good just like the restaurant. I have made this 3 times now and everyone loves it. Unreal how good this recipe is!!

We loved the blackened seafood fondue. We order it every time we go to Pappadeaux. I doubled this recipe because we were having company. The fondue was a little thinner than what is served at the resturant but had a very good taste. Next time I will cut down the amount of shrimp stock.

This is the best item on the menu at Pappadeaux. I order it every time I go. I cook this for my husband on special occasions and he can't get enough of it! Very, very scrumptious!

I LOVED IT! WOULD HAVE PUT A LITTLE MORE SPINACH THAN WHAT THE RECIPE CALLS FOR - BUT IT WAS STILL GREAT.
