    Default I got the Crabs in Sosua !

    Unbelievable !

    I am driving down Pedro Clisante and see these two beauties.

    I pull over and decide to take them home.

    After paying only $RD 700 for both I thought i was getting a deal.

    I took them home and after a few beers I steamed them!

    I bought a cracker but the shell was just too tough and I could not crack the shells so I through them out.

    I was wondering if you can purchase jumbo lump crabmeat in POP or even Alaskan King Crab?

    Mike,

    I'm not sure crackers will do the job.

    Sometimes you have to beat them to get the results you were looking for.

    Of course, a good soaking in boiling butter also softens them up. Perhaps you should try using the butter method, and then apply a sound beating.

    At 700 pesos a pop, it's probably worth a try.

    A question for the OP-do you live in the DR?

    If so, wouldn't it would be easier, more cost effective and more fun to go fish for your own seafood instead of paying 700 pesos for two crabs? How big were they?

    That's how we do it in Puerto Rico-if we decide we want crabs we grab the traps and go get them ourselves. Same if we want fish-we grab the fishing poles, throw the beer in the cooler and head on out.

    Miguelito: (my mom still calls me that) lol

    You have alot to learn. Take it from a true seafood lover. You threw away good money!!!!! 700RD for 2?

    Wasn't King Crab legs by your own quote.

    Can't be snow crab.

    Can't be Maryland (Baltimore) crabs.

    Dungeon crab, maybe

    Jueyes, maybe

    There is a science in handling crabs. There are males and females. Females have the best meat. lol but true. I can tell you how to tell the difference. Just ask!

    As far as the shell was too hard, 700rd, that sucker will be eaten.

    Con limon y unas Presidentes: PRICELESS

    Maybe there is something I do not know about Dominican crabs, lol , correct me if I am wrong.

    Mike, I like your sense of humor. Lost your beers and the crabs got the best of you.

    Crabs, you had me thinking STD!!!
