Cool crab meat in marinade ... best of the Mobile Bay

West Indies Salad

A specialty of Alabama seafood restaurants, West Indies salad is at once rich and piquant. It is served cool by the bowl – frequently family style for the whole table, accompanied by saltine crackers. It usually is an appetizer, but often is eaten in double portions as an entrée. Needless to say, everything depends on the goodness of the lump crabmeat. The West Indies Salad pictured here is from Jubilee Seafood of Montgomery, AlabamaRoadfood review of Jubilee Seafood
