Louisiana Style Dungeness Crab and Grits

Creamy grits, your way. Dungeness crab with a sweet meaty texture that makes you drool. We’ve even included a special signature sauce to marry it all together.

Louisiana can keep its gulf shrimp, even though it’s delicious, I will stick to my Pacific Dungeness Crab any day of the week, as long as it’s non-toxic that is. Dungeness crab is what crab meat should taste like, a little sweet, a little oceany, but over all something that’s drool worthy.

I don’t often say “this is the best thing I’ve ever ate” but this dish is one of those times. Much like Shrimp and Grits it balances the texture of the creamy grits with that of the shrimp or in this case the crab. The sauce though, this sauce is why I’m sharing this recipe. Imagine cocktail sauce, but 1000% better.
