When Chef Dakota Weiss celebrates with her family, she brings her wealth of food knowledge together with her savvy know-how to bring the freshest of fresh seafood into the hillsides of Santa Fe, New Mexico, for a summer kick-off Crab Boil.
The ingredients are basic: crab, shrimp, clams, potatoes, corn, and the spices: chile oil, garlic, spring onions, lemon and Old Bay, of course.
The celebratory menu for 30 included macaroni and cheese, grilled chicken breasts, fresh salad, fresh fruits, dinner rolls, pie and ice cream. YUM! Bring summer on.
Watch for Chef Dakota’s Instagram posts for more about seafood possibilities from her chef-inspired poke bowls at Sweetfin Poke, a California style favorite throughout Southern California.
