Sauteed Shrimp, Crab Cake & Grilled Ribeye

Hearty, rich gulf n grass is one of my favorites. It's great with a simple dinner salad, garlic bread, or as is. I don't always make a crab cake for this dish, it depends on if crab's on sale or not.

Rib eye

  • 16 rib eye (any size you want)
  • 1 tbsp Cottonmouth
  • 1 tsp salt

Crab Cake

  • ½ pound blue crab meat
  • 2 tbs chives
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ cup parmigiano (shredded)
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 oz egg


  • 1 lb shrimp (large peeled )
  • 1 ½ tbs butter
  • ½ tbs Cottonmouth
  • 1/4 salt


Grill Rib Eye

  • Rub Cottonmouth and salt all over steak.
  • Let rest on counter until room temperature.
  • Get your charcoal started on one side of your pit.
  • Once the coals are red hot place steak on colder side of grill.
  • Since rib eyes are typically thicker our grill time is a little different. Cooking over charcoal means you really have to sit and baby the steak. In the long run you are the one who determines “done-ness”.
  • I usually cook a 1 ½ to 2” steak at 4 minutes flip, 4 minutes flip, 3 minutes flip, 3 minutes pull steak.
  • Let rest until ready to plate.

Fry Crab Cake/s

  • Chop chives, crush garlic and put in bowl. Reserve a few chives for garnish.
  • In separate bowl scramble egg.
  • Add crab, parmigiano, bread crumbs, and salt.
  • Last add the scrambled egg.
  • Gently mix to combine ingredients. Try not to break up crab meat if using lump.
  • Make patties about 4-5 inches diameter.
  • In a medium high pan drizzle a shot of olive oil.
  • Add a patty and cook until browned then flip to brown other side. 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Set aside or or place one on top of a rib eye.

Saute Shrimp

  • In the pan you cooked crab in add the butter, shrimp, Cottonmouth, and salt.
  • Stir and or flip until shrimp turn white.

The Plating

  • From bottom to top: place rib eye in center of plate, stack on a crab cake, and last pour the sauteed shrimp and butter over the top.
  • Garnish with chives take a picture and get after it!

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
