So, apparently you cannot buy Dungeness Crab in Birmingham. I know, I know...I probably should have done some research before I wasted time/gas driving to every fish market and gourmet grocery store in town, only to be met with looks of amusement and/or pity when I presented my request ("Where does she think she lives, the west coast?").

Back to square one. AGAIN.

After poring over the contest's ingredient list for what would hopefully be the last time, I decided that I really wanted to keep grits in my recipe (I'm hoping a little southern flair will help me stand out), and I think that some sort of seafood will be the best pairing for the grits. Turns out, Halibut is about the only Washington-state seafood item that I can actually get in Birmingham. So there you have it. I've got six days to come up with a brand new recipe, test it, perfect it, video it, and
submit it.

Remind me why I thought this was a good idea?
