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! :)
There is nothing that compares to Shrimp'n grits! With this recipe, I decided to take it a step further by frying the shrimp and using a Citrus Glaze also use in the Snapper Recipe. Topped over grits the flavor excellent!
Snapper, in general, is highly celebrated in the Caribbean and this pan-fried approach lends itself well to large family dinners. 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!
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!
This recipe adds a new twist on the traditional Tampa style Crab Chilau with the addition of Dungeness Crab. It's a little less sweet compared to blue crabs but the amount of meat surely makes up for it!
Put away the pots and grab some skewers, foil and Chilau Sauce. The seafood feast is all about feeding the crowd with marinated shrimp, blue crab, snow crab, smoked sausage and corn. This preparation will surely make you an all-star at your next tailgate or bbq.
I say "cajun style" because this chilau based recipe tastes better than the cajun pasta at your favorite restaurant, and you can make it in 30 minutes in your own kitchen. I went with Shrimp and Smoked Sausage but feel free to Put Your Spin On It!
This by far is my favoriteChilau Sauce recipeaside from Tampa Style Crab Chilau, it's also the easiest. I was inspired to make it after a visit to New Orleans and tasting a creamy crawfish soup whipped up by myfriend'smom! I named it Bisque-Touffee because at first taste I was like, "this tastes like a New Orleans style bisque" and my wife, who attended college in Louisiana, said, "naaaah that's étouffée!" Needless to say, we got a compound word and an amazing recipe!
