Crab

Memorial Day kicks off Atlantic crab season, and as Max Watman writes on HuffPost:

Soft-shell crab season begins, according to lore, with the first full moon of May, which happened to come last Thursday, just in time for Memorial Day weekend. I've been looking forward to that full moon ever since I read the uplifting news that the harvest limits put into place a couple of years ago in Virginia and Maryland had worked. The blue crab population in the Chesapeake Bay is higher that it has been in ten years.

There's a lot of crab out there, and since Memorial Day is one of the grilling holidays, why not eschew the traditional batter and messy deep frying, and get right down to business with a good bed of hot coals?


Here's Max Watman's piece on how to grill soft-shells.
