Never thought I'd hear that from you Joe. A compliment well taken.
There seems to be a raging war on what the best crab is. Many like Alaskan King crab because they are so big. They got a lotta meat per shell, but it's a bit salty for my taste. Then ya have those that like Snow crab. Might as well eat a salt lick.
The east coasters rave about their Blue crab and I can't say cuz I've never eaten one. The question I have is; If they're so good, why do ya make 'em all into cakes? Ya add egg, seasoning, crumbs etc. to make 'em taste better?
Dungeness is sweet, firm, and slightly salty. SLIGHTLY. There is no need for anything else to 'spice it up'. That's simply sacrilege.
It's far and away the best crab on the planet. But I'm partial. Red rock crab are 2nd best. They're minny Dungies. Takes 3-4 fer a meal and a lot more work, but well worth the effort.
I don't know if ya can get Dungeness on line (probably) cuz I don't have to. If not, I can send ya a couple next day air. Just make sure ya got the tools ta get at all the meat.
Is it 6 o'clock yet?
