our story

Tampa Tradition Since 1920

As the legend goes Crab Chilau (Cangrejo Enchilado) was first introduced by Cuban immigrants who voyaged to Tampa to work the cigar factories in the Ybor City District, once known as the Cigar Capital of the WorldDuring the 1920's Ybor City was a melting pot of ethnic fusion and culture as Cuban, Spanish, Italian and African American residents embraced the dish and put their own unique spin on it.

24K Seafood Mac'n Cheese with Lobster, Shrimp, Scallops and Crab Meat

24K Mac'n Cheese (Seafood Mac'n Cheese) was an idea I had when thinking about the ultimate side item to bring for Thanksgiving dinner. Special occasions call for the special treatment with lobster, jumbo shrimp, scallops and lump crab meat. The addition of Chilau added the perfect amount of kick and bold flavor! It was a hit! Must try!

Deviled Crab Corn Bread Dressing with Chilau Sauce

One of my favorite foods during Thanksgiving and Family dinners is cornbread dressing (stuffing), usually enjoyed next to a juicy turkey or succulent collard greens. This twist on the Tampa Bay staple Deviled Crab ads a new twist to dressing that makes for the perfect side item to spice things by adding crab and kick to the party. Feel free to put your spin on it with choice of meats, veggies, and seafood. The pan will disappear fast so make sure you get your corner first! :)

Marinated Pan Fried Snapper with Citrus Glaze

Red snapper, in general, is highly celebrated in the Caribbean and this pan-fried approach lends itself well to large family dinners and celebrations. The citrus glaze is sweet and garlicky with a little heat that really brings out the flavor of the fish. Serve with rice, grits or straight up! Delicious!

Garlic Crab Boil with Dungeness Crab, Shrimp, Mussels and Clams (GUMBOIL)

When originally creating this recipe my goal was to show the Chilau Heads (cooking group) they could experience an a...

Surf & Turf BBQ with Baby-back ribs, Shrimp and a Sweet Tangy Mustard Sauce

I'm often asked is Chilau good with other meats besides seafood and my answer is always, "Yes!" Though Chilau was inspired by a seafood based recipe it has the essential flavor profile that is universal to amazing flavor. Onion, Garlic, Chile Peppers and spices like black pepper, cumin, mustard and celery are stables in many cooking styles. For this particular recipe I wanted to display how you can elevate your BBQ with Chilau Seasonings as well as create an amazing sweet and tangy honey mustard bbq sauce. I decided to go with the open faced sandwich approach but the mustard bbq sauce and seasonings can fuel your entire BBQ Festivities.

Lobster Ramen with Shrimp

One of the best recipes I have ever made!!! Since my days of microwaving those plastic packs to experiencing chef-crafted ramen at a restaurant or food truck ramen has always been one of my favorite foods. Recently I saw an instagram post of lobster ramen with a creamy broth. I knew immediately how I would recreate that dish using chilau sauce. I prefer the Citrus flavor in cream-based dishes but if you happen to not have that flavor on hand Original or Gumbo will do it Justice. 

Smothered Chicken with Chilau Gumbo

Smothered Chicken with Chilau Gumbo. This was one of those quick meals that I created on the spot. I had limited ingredients but enough to create some of the best chicken I’ve ever tasted. I had two left over bottles of Gumbo sitting in the fridge so I used those as the base flavor. I needed something low carb, so I served it over cauliflower rice. I finally have my cast iron pan seasoned just right and I’ve been using it more often!  

Chilau Seafood Curry with Dungeness Crab and Shrimp

If you have never had seafood curry you must try this recipe. Following the same 2:1 ratio as other chilau sauce preparations this recipe features the addition of Coconut Milk and Curry Powder. Feel free to get creative and adjust the meat and veggie to your preference!
