This is one of my favorite recipes to make, especially in Florida. It’s easy to make, even for beginners in the kitchen. The ingredients are easy to come by and make an inexpensive meal seem five-star gourmet. Plus, seafood by the beach? It’s a must.
One of the best parts about making this recipe while on vacation in Panama City Beach is the easily accessible fresh seafood. While I normally make this recipe using canned crab meat, as seen below, Panama City Beach has several local seafood markets where you can find fresh crab meat to substitute. One of my personal favorites is Buddy’s Seafood Market. With two locations (one of which is less than two miles from Calypso), their seafood is accessible, local, and fresh.
Another way to make this delicious recipe Panama City Beach exclusive is to replace the hot sauce. In our very own Pier Park lies Pepper Palace, your one-stop-shop for anything hot sauce related. You can swing by and pick up your favorite hot pepper sauce to use for this recipe.
Whether you are making this recipe with fresh crab meat or canned, it quickly becomes a family favorite.
