Executive chef Robbie Nicolaisen poses in front of the doors of The Hound in 2017

Two local chefs will be squaring off in the 7th annual Alabama Seafood Cook-Off on Monday at the The Lodge at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores. The dishes of the Hound’s Robbie Nicolaisen and The Depot’s Morgan McWaters were both selected by a panel of judges earlier this month. 

The selection process required chefs from across the state to submit a recipe that included an Alabama Gulf seafood product as the featured ingredient. An expert panel of judges reviewed each chef’s recipe and selected their top four based on creativity, composition, harmony of ingredients and more.
