OT.

Caught by a friend last September on our local river Tweed on a black and yellow bucktail 1" copper tube fly. Nice Scottish Bogdan 400M clone!

Fish was 23lbs.

regiregi, I really like the creative side of cooking. It's something that is often missing in mine.

What kind of crabs are they and do you always boil them whole like that?

Hi Cal!
Those crabs are called "Buey de mar" (traslated as "sea ox"):
Cancer pagurus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And Centolla:
Maja squinado - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How do you boil them? I put the crab still alive in cold water with quite big amount of salt and a bay leaf, then it is heated until it starts to boil. The moment it starts to boil, the moment it is to retire from heat, and to leave it in resting in this water for 1 or 2 hours (until it's cold again). It is said that this is the critical part, where by means of osmosis salt and flavours are absorved and assented.

What is your recipe? I have heard that you add some chilis to it. In Spain that would be looked as an abbomination, the same as if you said to add ketchup to the crab (but who knows! you americans use ketchup a lot )

Best regards!

I like to split them, clean them and add to a salted chili boil. Cleaning them reduces the leaching of the bodily fluids back into the meat which is seen as distasteful around here. Boil 5 mins, no more and let rest for 3 minutes before serving nice and hot.

Then there's the fry method which is very popular with our asian brothers. That starts by removing the whole shell (with guts intact) and cutting the body into one or two leg pieces, adding a seasoned salt to the exposed meat, let stand for 15 mins before coating in starch and then frying in a wok for 3 or 4 minutes. It is then topped with either a green onion, fried garlic and fresh sliced chillies or a starch type sauce of oriental ilk.

There are other ways but those are the two that happen in this house.

I am interested in your crabs. It is nice to see the different types around the world and I hope to get the opportunity to try them some day. We usually use Dungeness as it is rather plentiful around these parts.

And I'm Canadian rather than American. Ketchup doesn't play the same roll here. It's really just a fast food type condiment for french fries, hot dogs and hamburgers. Same with that bright yellow mustard. Real foodies know better.

Hmmm, there is mayonnaise made by hand from scratch and it does fit into several cuisines. Don't forget Iron Chef Chen reached for a big quart bottle of Heinz to finish off his world famous dish. You guys have an haute cuisine alternative to fries with ketchup called putine.
