Crab. Hmmmm. Until I was nearly twenty I had only had crab from a tin. This made liking real crab a bit of a trial. I am not keen on seafood at all and crab always seems wet and mushy to me but I can eat it and would if it meant not starving to death.
I like IT, but IT does not like ME!!! I am allergic to shellfish, so unless I want a holiday in hospital,
I do not eat any of these delicious morsels!
Again, I shall have to ask everyone o enjoy for me too when you indulge!!!
I read the first bit and had wild visions of you and a crab fencing . . you had a sword and he was unarmed. LOL LOL. Of course, because I have no idea what you look like, in my vision you were the same size as the crab and looked like Joan of Arc. Wahahahahahahahahahahahahahha.
Oh Dear!!! That is better than the crab being the same size as ME!!!! HEE HEE HEE!!!!! You always make such super comments, and bring so many smiles to others!!! Your comments from and to Finy today cracked me up!!!!
Now if it was David fighting the crab and saving me, THAT would be a treat!!!!
Fresh crab meat is so sweet - it's absolutely delicious and (unless allergic to seafood) everyone should try it. It's also extremely low in fat and provides a high protein hit.
The downside is that it's an expensive eat (when you prise away the outer shell there's not a lot of meat to enjoy) BUT most notably it's just so fiddly and cumbersome to eat. The best part of the crab is found in the legs and claws - where you'll find the juiciest and most sweet tasting meat, it's just a punishment to reach ! Having said this whenever we make a cold seafood platter at home for guests it does usually contain one obligatory crab !
Love it. Enjoy soft shell crab from my favourite restaurant. Would eat the huge chilli crabs too if my auto immune system would let me. But my favourite is the king Alaskan crab claws which we eat a lot. We do use nutcrackers and kitchen scissors to get most of the meat out as it's sometimes difficult to use your hands without getting spiked. We eat it with freshly squeezed lime, or with home made seafood dressing. It has such a nice sweet taste so don't like to cook it.
Yes, I love crab. We have had it a couple of times on cruises. I've never bought 1 & cooked it, but if I'm out for dinner &I see 'soft shell crab' on the menu, I'll certainly buy it! I just LOVE soft shell crab!
I love to eat crab but I wish someone else would prepare it for me. Its annoying having to try and get the meat out and I cut myself on several occassions.
I dont like buying crab in tins though because ever single tin I've ever bought to use in a recipe has had pieces of shell in it.
