Crab Sour Cream Enchiladas


  One of the great things about crab is how versatile it is.  It’s great just steamed and eaten out of the shell.  If you’re feeling schnazzy, you can dip it in garlic butter or aioli.  A simple chilled crab cocktail is delicious.  Of course, there are crab cakes and stuffed mushrooms; its great on salads and in pasta dishes.…

Crab Chili Rellenos


July has arrived, and that means Dungeness crab season here in the Puget Sound. I love this time of year.  Even when fishing is slow, or dead, we usually come home with fresh crab. Just remember what I’ve told you before, the key to a full crab pot is two baits.  One broadcast bait to lure the crab in, and a feeder bait to…

Crab Scotch Eggs


Apparently Boxers British Pub in New York City is gone now.  According to an internet search, the only place in New York called Boxers these days is a gay sports bar.   The place I used to go to with that name had a somewhat different theme. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Boxers was a cool British…

Crab Gravy over Biscuits


It was on one of those stormy weekends we had back in September. For the first time in months, I wasn’t out the door early with my boat boots on. Even though I was disappointed that I was missing another shot at the coho run in the Sound, I was making lemonade of the situation by relaxing on my couch…

Dungeness Crab Brunch


It was the meeting of three blogs when the good folks from The Original Fare, and my friend Alice Currah of Savory Sweet Life came out on my boat for a morning of crabbing and dining by the Sound. Here is the video they made.

Crab Egg Foo Young


The Chinese food that many of us are most familiar with, delicious as it is, isn’t exactly authentic Chinese. If you were going out to eat in China, you’d be hard pressed to find General Tsao’s chicken, chop suey, or sweet & sour pork. I got a good lesson in this some years ago when I lived in New York…

Crab Focaccia Bread


Aack!!  I’m missing the beginning of Dungeness crab season. I know, I know, you guys are used to me being on the cusp, cutting edge, the very tip-of-the-spear of Pacific Northwest seafood acquisition. (please play stirring, operatic music while reading that line of bullshit) However, as I write this, my boat is parked out of the water, my crab traps are…

Crab Grilled Cheese


Spring has finally sprung, at least as far as the calendar is concerned anyway. Here in the Pacific Northwest, that means we are transitioning from the gray and rain of winter into the gray and heavy rain of spring. Yeah, we’re not seeing shorts & t-shirt weather for some time yet around here. Still, Spring is rolling in, and that…

Tropical Crab Cocktail


I’m beginning to realize that my assessment of dropping crab pots on the way out and then picking them back up after fishing as being “easy peazy” may not be universally agreed upon. I thinking in particular of those guests on my boat that aren’t crabbing and just came out to fish. It does take a bit of time heading…
