This is very good dish, especially for such a simple recipe. I used half and half and wisked in 1 tablespoon flour for thickness. In the future, I may try adding some fresh garlic. Also, if your cajun/creole seasoning doesn't have salt added, be sure to add some salt!

This recipe is great. You may want to use linguene instead of angel hair pasta. Also make sure you use a cooking pot when reducing the cream, it likes to boil over. If you dont have enough crawfish scalops mixed in workds great.

Great recipe, although I would make two suggestions. 1) Use linguine instead of angel hair. 2) Most cajun seasonings are incredibly salty. Keep that in mind and half the amount of seasoning if salty foods bother you. And I'll also say that it took a very long time for my sauce to thicken. Allow over an hour when planning this meal! Great recipe! Thanks!
