Bahamian or Caribbean Conch Chowder is a menu staple throughout Florida and for good reason. The combination of fresh produce, warm Island spices and a light yet flavorful broth make it perfect for the warm weather that is Florida. The drawback for me is usually the conch meat itself, which instead of being tender and delicate tends to be tough and chewy from being overcooked. I have a simple solution, lose the conch and replace it with our fantastic crab meat!
I love taking classic recipes and giving them an upscale swing with the addition of premium ingredients like our delicious crab meat. For this recipe it is basically a cornbread batter with some crab added and it is deep fried into a little crispy, moist and delicious taste of the South. Pair it with a funky dipping sauce, like pickled jalapeno tartare or a spicy bloody Mary cocktail sauce and you have got an easy way to wow your guests.

I always think of New Orleans as a second home and was lucky enough to have attended college there and even actually went class every once in awhile. Classic jambalaya with smoky andouille sausage and sweet crab meat.
Crab cakes are a classic, however, everyone seems to have their own “secret” recipe. This is a little bit fancy!
