with Italian Vinaigrette
Last Sunday, at the Channel Islands Farmers’ Market, Fresh Fish Fanatics had California King Crabs! They have really long legs and look like space aliens, but the fishermen assured me that they are the “filet mignon” of crabs. I bought them live right on the dock. They are so sweet and delicious and the preparation was really simple – that’s because Chris cleaned them for us when I bought them! Despite their funky appearance, these crabs yielded so much meat.
Fill a large stockpot 2/3 full with water.
Add 3 Tablespoons of Salt and 3 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning.
Bring to a boil and add Red Potatoes.
Boil for 10 minutes, then add crabs.
Continue to boil for 15 more minutes.
Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper.
Serve crab with melted butter.
