Steamy Crabs

You've probably seen the TV show "Deadliest Catch," huh? Did you ever think about where all those delicious crabs end up? Well, some of them end up on the back of a truck in my neighbourhood!

As I neared the back of the truck to have a look, the guy came around and told me the prices. On the far left, there were smaller skinny crabs - 3 for 10,000W. You wouldn't get a heck of a lot of meat out of them, but they'd be a bargoon for a single meal and some stock making. I told Crab Guy I'd maybe buy some next time, but could I take a picture? "Sure," he said. I pointed to the crabs on the right side and said, "Those are monsters!" He laughed.

I didn't test it, but these babies were easily the span of my arm stretched out. Big! They're pretty expensive, too. I can't remember if Crab Guy said they were 30,000 or 40,000 each. Still, there's surely enough meat for 2 or 3 people. Or me and my cat.

Big Big Crabs. Big Tasty Crabs. I should have asked Crab Guy for a bib, because I was drooling all over my shirt.
