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.

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.
