Crabpops got the right idea,  lets go Ice Crabbin !

  Hey here in southern NJ,  we got snow all over.   I built a nautical crab shop last year,  and now I have shoveled my way to the doors and turned on the heat.   Now I gotta start goin over all my crabbin and fishin equipment, and build a couple new creek traps.  I am lookin out the window,  and there sits my beloved creek ship,  the Cyn Mel Sue.   She's got a good 2 feet of snow on her with drifts over 3 feet against her stern!   She has had a lot of repairs and holes plugged over the years,   but I know I can get one more year out of her.   Well,  I like this new set up of Steves,  and just felt like doin a little crab yackin !   ^<**>^   Capt Williecrab,  creek explorer in southern NJ !

I can't wait to catch some hard crabs so I can try a new recipe! Smiley

I spent a lot of time this winter researching Texas BBQ Crabs... a local delicasy down along the Texas gulf coast. I've gotten lots of emails from displaced Texans looking for the recipe, so I deciced to learn more about this dish.

Anyway, with all this snow and ice, I'm chompin' at the bit to go crabbing!

Oh yeah, if you want to check out the recipe, you'll find it here:

Steve,

There are a few places here just south of Baltimore who have a dish somewhat like that barbequed crab you are talking about.  Usually they take a blue crab and open it and clean it.  Then they stuff it with a crab mixture, dip the whole thing in a batter then deep fry it.

I don't eat a lot of fried food so I've never tried it, but it is interesting looking.  You're right about the need for the frying to be done just right....temperature...time, etc or the whole thing is just a big blob of grease.

I can not wait for my first fried hard crab each year!!!!!!!  We dont stuffum tho.  Seems like the meat in the stuffin gets a little to mushy for our taste.  Over cooked I guess.

Cap'n Willie,

 Good tae see yer smilin keys. Wondered if the Stripers had hauled ye intae the surf or the rips?  Spring Striper season is fast approaching. Traps an Pots must be mended. Check oot NJ Grasshopper's washin machine roller crab cleaner. Seen any of them in SJ lately? Wanna buy one and give it a try.
