Crabs caught just off our dock at Gumbo Cove were perfectly satisfying and reminiscent of my childhood at the beach in Gilchrist, TX.
This is a winning team of ingredients, my friends! The peppery arugula is the perfect foundation for the creamy goat cheese and shrimp, and the balsamic dressing ties it all together like a bow on a birthday present.

Crab Louie is a perfect summer salad, but you don’t have to stop at crab – other seafood like plank-grilled salmon or shrimp are just as good.
