  1. Thank you. I have to try this. It looks so delicious. Is there a way you can put pictures of your ingredients? I want to buy the exact ingredients you used. Thanks

  2. Thank you so much …and I used a Kroger brand crab claw meat, I didn’t post it because not everyone has a Kroger grocery store near them. With the ingredients you can use whatever your fave brands are and the recipe will still come out great ❤️

  3. There are no words to describe how AMAZING this dish is….let’s just say, it made our Valentine’s Day meal memorable!!! I paired it with the Lemon Butter lobster tails!! Thank you soo much for sharing your passion with all of us!!

  4. Paula I have a question, I see people asking for bloggers for their EXACT ingredients all the time and I’ve already wondered why? It’s not like you know what her dish taste like when she makes it personally so why is that important to you? Not being sarcastic or anything just a serious question because I see it so much.

    Shauntay I made this last week and it was AMAZING, I used slightly smaller shrimp and paired it with your yellow rice. Thank you so much for posting this.

  5. I made this today for Father’s Day brunch with a side of sautéd collards/kale and biscuits. I must say it was amazing! I followed your recipe exactly as written and even cooked in some fresh jalapeño and poblano peppers into the cajun sauce. I will only use your crab cake recipe from now on!

  6. You really have skills in the kitchen. So proud of you. Keep up the good work and keep giving us these awesome recipes! You are greatly appreciated!
