This seafood delight is so beloved it has spawned restaurants named after it and a fanatical following for tasting these treats in-season.
Just try getting a table in South Florida at certain restaurants at particular times of year. Whether you love blue crabs, stone crabs, or something else entirely, the fact of the matter is that Southerners simply want to get them on your plate—and probably in some form of the 'cake' variety. We love these so much we've got recipes for Uncle Frank's Crab Cakes spiced with Old Bay and Worcestershire Sauce, and Faidley's Crab Cakes seasoned with some Dijon mustard: and those two are just for starters. If these don't tickle your fancy,
Crab Salad with Peaches and Avocados bring Southern tastes of the season to seafood, while Green Tomato Soup with Lump Crabmeat does the same, just for another course. If you can't get enough crab after all this, try some Cornbread-and-Crab Stuffed Fish, which just may do the trick. However you shell them, crabs make great choices for super suppers.
