    Just how spicy is this? Can one sub green pepper for some of the jalapeno if they're a little wimpy on the spiciness?

    This is more asian than creole, need crushed tomatoes instead of ketchup, and scotch bonnet pepper instead of cayenne(cajun use cayenne), no rice wine vinegar or soy sauce, this dish needs to be re- named chef john.

    At the Takara Sake Factory in Berkeley they sell a really good Aji-Mirin (seasoned rice vinegar) that I think tastes really fantastic. You can get them online, I'm sure!

    Honestly this is spot on culturally for Mardi Gras. Louisiana is known for rice production and New Orleans has a very strong Asian community and we all know the Gulf has crabs. Chef John, you may have invented a new Louisiana Classic.

    Sidenote: The trinity that Chef John used isn't the trinity that is used in Louisiana. The trinity is these ingredients in equal proportions: yellow or white onion, green bell pepper, and celery. Chef John gussied it up to work in this recipe and I'm okay with that. :)

    I don't want to analyze it too much, but I think that what I love about Chef John is the realness--I don't know if he scripts these but they don't feel scripted. He knows exactly what he is doing and is in control of his ingredients, so it's natchy. Nuff Respect

    In general, I enjoy watching your videos. However, I do question why you would call this a creole dish if you are using Asian ingredients like soy sauce, rice vinegar and rice noodles.

    Chapter 11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
    8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.
    9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
    10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
    11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
    12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

    Chapter 66:
    15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
    16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
    17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

    You're an amazing chef don't get me wrong, amazing tutorials. But dude your fucking voice sounds horrible. the way you enunciate words is way too extra. sound like you're reading a book with 12,000 commas in it. better to just have sound off and subtitles on
