It is four weeks into the Dungeness crab season and we have finally scored some live crustaceans. The first week the fisherman and the distributors were haggling over the price. Thanksgiving came and went. Last weekend we had a logistics problem. All that has passed and we have 2 pound crabs swimming in our hot pot. Our local "International Market" has the best price of 2.99/pound in the Bay Area. Crab cakes tonight. Oh Yeah!

Gosh, another fantastic photo of steam. How do you do it?
Hey, you're late for the market!

I can't wait for our first crab of the season! But we just eat them plain out of the shell, no fussing with crab cakes. I'll be interested to read your recipe, however.

What cookiecrumb said! The color is great and the photo calls out "eat crab."

Cookiecrumb we could not find a tent and Ms. Goofy was washing her hair. Greg, You are right in a crustacean manner. Zoomie, Type crab cakes in the upper left corner of the site and several recipes will pop up. thanks you guys and gals

The few times I HAVE found them here, we paid at least $12/lb.

chris, West Coast crabs have a long way to go to your neighborhood. We are lucky in a crab sort of way.
