A few years ago one of our West Coast customers was looking for a unique recipe to showcase our crab meat. Well, when I think California, I think avocado. And it just happens that crab is the perfect compliment for the delicate flavor and creamy texture of avocado. So, in the spirit of my crab soup showcase, here is the recipe.
My family loves soup and I make it for them at least once a week. Crab is the perfect ingredient to elevate that tried and true recipe from boring to extraordinary. I happen to love tomatoes and at the end of the season this is a great way to use up all those “less than perfect” tomatoes that might not be quite perfect enough to make the plate on that Caprese salad. In the cooler months, you can easily substitute high quality canned tomatoes to give a little break from the cold Winter months with a Summertime classic.
I developed this recipe a few years ago for a Winter sales meeting for one of our customers in northern Michigan. Wild rice is very popular in the area, with some of the best coming from neighboring Minnesota. The addition of our sweet and delicious crab took the recipe to the next level and it was a go to dish and recipe that we shared with our customers all over the country. Well here is the recipe, the two essential ingredients are of course, our crab meat and Minnesota wild rice (which in reality isn’t a rice, but rather a type of grass). I hope you enjoy.
As we come to the end of our show season for Fall of 2018. Here is the recipe for the crab queso we have been serving all over the country. This recipe is the perfect example of how you can elevate your menu and guest experience by “just adding crab”! Whether you follow this simple recipe or use a premade queso and add some crab and garnishes to create a signature dish that your customers will love. And yes, there is cheese in our queso, as well as crab.
Nothing says Summer to me more than watermelon, and it also just happens to be one of my favorite compliments to our sweet crab meat!
Always one of my favorite classic dishes to get an easy upscale update with the addition of crab. Since it is the height of tomato season, I switch from the traditional tomato sauce to a much lighter “Summer” version featuring fresh, roasted baby tomatoes.
What could be better than a relaxing Sunday brunch? Well, we take it to the next level by adding some of our delicious crab meat to a potato hash, topping with sunnyside quail eggs and drizzled with a tart and floral Meyer lemon hollandaise sauce. The only thing you are missing is a perfectly spicy Bloody Mary.
This is a very version of the classic hot dip with the upscaled addition of our delicious crab meat.
Crab cakes are a classic, however, everyone seems to have their own “secret” recipe. This is a little bit fancy!
