Alaskan Crab Legs with Lemon Mayonnaise.

Monday 31st October 2011

“They’re not real.” Zephy said as he approached the table.

I know what he means. They look like something out of a cartoon.

“If the legs are that long, imagine what size the body is.” I said.

His eyes widened slightly at the thought.

I remember the first time I had them I thought similarly. Some friends took us to a restaurant down by the harbour in Seattle, U.S.A. They were served on a plate of ice, on a foot high stand, hanging over the edge. I was impressed, to say the least, to see half a dozen over-sized, salmon coloured claws dangling from the side of my plate.

I cut the legs open with a pair of scissors & pulled out the meat to make it easier for Zephy to get on & eat. I also left the claw on his plate to remind him of what he was eating.

I then prepared my Dad’s plate & turned, only to see him teasing Yaya (my Mum) with the claw.

“Get outta here ya stinker!” She said.

    A stinker indeed. 😉

  2. Wow. You ate well for dinner last night. 😉 I’ve never liked to imagine the size of them. Too spidery and I DO NOT like spiders. Awfully tasty spiders, however.

  3. Lucky Zephy! What a gourmet treat!

    yes a real treat for us all and the lemon mayonnaise went so well with them, loved to have them again but they are a bit pricey!
