Are you familiar with the different dishes cooked on the coasts of the south? Southern fisherman find fish, lobster, shrimp, crab, mussels, clams, oysters, and the lists goes on and on. These delicious sea creatures are great for BBQs and broils, but what about the gourmet dishes that we rarely see? Foodies have created #foodporn and #foodgasm just to describe how great these dishes look. Whenever I’m in the mood to see delicious food or get inspiration for my next meal, I pull out my phone. Food photography is one the newest trends picking up on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Are you looking for more inspiration in your southern kitchen?

This is a traditional technique done to almost anything caught on our southern shores. Battered and fried to a golden crisp. Here is one of my favorites, Lemon Pepper and Cajun Fried Crab. The butter on the side just made the picture that much more of a tease.
