Holy shit, those things are off the charts delicious.
I would take one of those over a fucking King Crab or a Snow Crab in a heart beat.
You poor sonsabitches on the East Coast with those piss poor Blue Crabs and those soft shelled little jokers have no clue.
Dungenness crabs are the shit.
Hard shelled, meaty and more like eating a lobster with many arms, I, myself, the little skinny bastard I am, could eat four of the damn things at one sitting on a good day, three any other day, and these things can weigh up to two frickin’ pounds before ya yank the back off and clean out the lungs and such.
Throw in a couple of oyster shooters just for fun and some decent whiskey, I am one happy camper.
All that is missing is a giant bucket of steamer clams with a large bowl full of melted garlic butter and a huge plate full of mussels steamed in white wine, maybe some garlic bread.
Every once in a while I can seriously pig out.
