"I AGREE with the other reviewers; whatever you do OMIT the bacon and all the fatty bacon fat part. The recipe on it's own is terrific and everyone loves it; but with the pork fat some of my guests couldn't eat it!
Make it healthy and without the pork and you have a fun recipe everyone will Love! :)"
"So that ALL my guests could enjoy it I used VEGETABLE broth instead of nasty, salty chicken broth. It came out flavorful and delicious and would rec'd for sure. (I use veggie broth most of the time anyway--so much better for you...!!!!)"
"You can make recipe as is in all its glory or just use it for the lovely corn pudding and sear a good piece of grouper in butter and put on top for presentation."
"Disappointment; Way too heavy! Everyone felt 'yucky full' --don't spend the money!"
"The eggplant was great! Very tasty; now to make the meal much healthier for my family we did GRILLED SALMON, the combo of the salmon and the eggplant was amazing!
Why bother with that much unhealthy red meat and artery clogging beef when you can do this dish with salmon and have a really healthful and flavorful meal! I really rec'd it! Cheers!"
"Truly lovely IF--*whatever* you do--use lobster stock or veggie stock--had so many guests/clients decline for ethical reasons cause of veal stock; and then side by side taste tests all of us agreed the lobster stock/veggie stock tasted MUCH better!"
"If you want to use plain water instead of the mussel water go ahead; it's good to dilute the wine a bit with fresh water--but by NO means use chicken broth as a substitute--NO Matter WHAT. If you add chicken broth you introduce possible salmonella to a healthy seafood dish--and would RUIN the flavors involved in the dish.
So if you've decided not ""
"Whatever you do do NOT use chicken stock in the lemon sauce! Use veggie stock instead (no brainer). Adding the sodium fest of chicken stock to this dish was a disaster. You NEVER want to add poultry anything to a seafood dish anyway.""
"This recipe was fantastic! Make sure to do--as is--change NOTHING.;0)
(To the pathetic guy who changed something so sublime--and used beef in a fish recipe...? You just made us throw up in our mouths!)""
