gulf blue crab gratin recipe

The best blue crab you’ve ever eaten isn’t frozen or imported. It’s right here in the good old US of A — just ask any aficionado. Specifically, it can be found along the nutrient-rich Gulf Coast, which is home to plump, meaty shellfish in extraordinary abundance.

Gulf Coast Seafood has been providing fishermen, grocers, chefs and foodies with an economic engine that powers the entire region. The Gulf Coast produces 70 percent of the nation’s oysters and 69 percent of domestic shrimp and is a leading producer of domestic hard- and soft-shell blue crabs.

Thanks to the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board for this awesome blue crab gratin recipe. Don’t worry, these crabs don’t bite. We’re pretty sure you’re the one who will be biting (and biting, and biting) until it’s all gone.
