Try this very simple preparation of traditional shrimp scampi that's enhanced with crab. Don't feel limited to adding crab specifically; bay scallops and lobster also work well.

This is a surprising combination for fried oysters. The crispness of the hot oysters and the acidity from the okra and the vinaigrette, along with the creamy, pungent cheese and sweet corn, makes for a nice contrast in flavors.

Sweet Corn, Leek, and Basil Crab Cakes

Served with the same Champagne-Citrus Beurre Blanc as the Roasted Grouper and stuffed with savory ingredients like sweet corn, these crab cakes pack quite a flavorful punch.

Hank's twist on the spicy, cold soup creates a much more colorful meal than your typical recipe. Feel free to omit the okra if you wish.
