Blue Crab Beignets at Ralph's on the Park
Posted February 14, 2012
Ralph’s on the Park, a charming two-story restaurant with wrap-around balconies and antebellum touches overlooking the grand old oak trees with their whispers of moss, is the quintessential southern establishment oozing with hospitality. There are several comforting, yet elegant, dishes that define the culinary style here, but one tasty stand out is the pillowy Blue Crab Beignets with Spicy Pepper Jelly Cream. The sweetness and light of Gulf blue crab is encased in a perfectly golden fritter-like dough. The cream is flecked with the distinctive flavor of New Orleans’ signature condiment, pepper jelly, hot peppers soaked in syrup infused with seasonings. A delicate dose on the beignet propels you with an irresistible kick... to grab another.
