Dungeness crabs, ever had them? http://www.dungeness.com/crab/

Irwin and I have been talking about them lately. Where he lives he can go down to the water and catch them. I've never had them until this past Tuesday.

We have an all you can eat place here for them on Tuesdays and I've been wanting to go try and my wife and I went over. They were seasoned very well and had drawn butter for dipping. They're larger than our blue crabs and much, much easier to eat. Our blue crabs have all these little compartments where the meat is that drive you crazy trying to get to.

IMO, they are better than snow crabs, but not as good as king crabs. They taste to me, like a cross between snow crab and lobster, not bad at all!

Anyway, I'm going to bring my Dad, hopefully this Tuesday coming, so we can pig out, father and son!

That is where my mind went also when I saw the title, I mean first the chiggers, and now this, I was thinking poor guy.

Ha Ha

Anyway,  although I don't eat fish JP, they way you describe it, it sure sound nice to me.  When I became a vegetarian, I still used to eat fish, but not for a long time now.

Irwin, what do you do, bring back some of the water with you? Never heard of this before.

Irwin, can't wait for this coming Tuesday, so I can get crabs again! grin

Annette, since you don't eat fish anymore, why not try crab?

Hey Mick, stop lending your towel to your mate! lau

JP I was working up in Maine one time and we took a little excursion while up there to grab some lobster's.
It was after the season but the local guys had some traps set out they said they were saving for us. Well we rode out in a boat to the traps and then to a little island. The locals grabbed a pot of seawater and nothing else and boiled those lobsters. let me tell ya it was the best I ever had so I agree with Irwin that seawater is the way to go. it almost made me wonder if we could do something like that for the crawfish here.

Related to the crab you ate yeah man thoses guys are awesome hands down beat our blues. The problem with blues is you put so much effort in them for so little meat in return.

Keith, now our blues are pretty dang awesome, especially the fat in the shell, to me that's the best part, but they are a pain to eat. I meant to ask the place I ate the Dungenesses what about the shell?

If someone ever has all you can eat king crab, they are in trouble from me!

Irwin, I kid you not our blues are quite delicious albeit a little bit of a pain to eat. As I mentioned, the fat inside the shell is the best part and the claws, can't get any leg meat, legs are too small for that.

Dungeoness Crab is best cooked whole.  My favorite way of cooking our local crab is to wrap it in seaweed then steam it in a pot of sea water, the way the Indians used to do it.  Throw a few in on top of a tub of butter clams and have a beach party.
