According to Business Alabama, four chefs from across the state will put their seafood cooking skills to the test in Gulf Shores on June 21 during the sixth annual Alabama Seafood Cook-Off. Michael Andrzejewski of Fisher’s in Orange Beach and his team will compete for the chance to represent Alabama in the 17th annual Great American Seafood Cook-Off in Louisiana in August. He will be making Gulf tripletail with smoked fish fritters, bacon jam and green herb purée. To be chosen for the final four, chefs from across the state submitted seafood recipes to a panel of judges who considered creativity, composition, harmony of ingredients and more in their selection process. The other finalists are Brandon Burleson of Sparta Academy Nutrition Program in Evergreen, Kelly Hargroves of Wind Creek Hotel & Casino in Montgomery and Scott Simpson of The Depot in Auburn.
