A collection of 50 tasty recipes that make the best use of East and West Coast crabs—from Dungeness and Alaskan king to blue crab and stone crab
If you dream about perfectly prepared crab cakes, steamed Dungeness straight from the shell, or lightly coated soft-shell blue crabs, this is your cookbook. Culinary expert Cynthia Nims offers 50 delicious ways to love crab—whether it’s Dungeness, Alaskan king, and snow crab from the West Coast or blue and stone crab from the East. Pulled from your own crab pot or sourced at the local fishmonger, crab is always wild and brings a sweet taste of the sea to every bite.
Beyond the recipes, Nims offers background on crab species, information about seasonal harvest and sport crabbing, and plenty of kitchen tips to make the most out of crab. Pass the crab crackers!
