An Ode to Soft Shelled Crab and to Chef Chris DeNello

Soft shelled crab has been one of my five most favorite foods ever since I first tasted it some 25 years ago. So of course, when I saw it was among the specials a few nights ago at Alligator Soul, I immediately ordered it. These wonderful little creatures are only available about once a year, so when they are, I grab them! These proved to be, unquestionably, the very best I have ever eaten, any time, anywhere. Chef Chris DiNello’s amazing artistry in the kitchen never fails to astound me. These marvelous morsels were sautéed w/Seasoned Georgia Peanut, Organic Local Ground Ginger and L cal Corn Meal Flour. House made Kim Chi, Lemon Dressed Local Organic Red Sorrell, Cajun Steamed and Grilled Crawfish, Spiced Bourbon Caramel rounded off the dish, which was served with Creamy Freeman Mills Stone Ground Grits.
