Let's talk crab [NJ]

Holy mackerel that’s one ugly bug.


Well crabbing was off last night. However, if anyone is in the mood, dungies are on sale at shoprite. I just tanked a few. So good! I love those things. I have some heaps crab shell blackfish chum ready for the season :slight_smile:


I saw those yesterday, my favorites … but I only eat them when I’m in CA

Yes they are !!! Dungies = Delishus !!!

Dungeness Crab feeds are a big deal in Washington State when these first come into season in March.

For some reason, they are really popular with local Democratic Party organizations.

I got the itch to get some last week.
With apologies to that Nobu guy. Tog, ponzu, jalapeno, lime.


Nice…how did that come out Tom?



That’s what I’m talking about! Giant King Crab Legs.

If you are a raw fish guy, tog and black seabass are hard to beat. I enjoy it.


So has anyone been into any good crab or crab cakes lately? I had some cakes at Harborside tonight and these were actually pretty decent for an 11 dollar app. They weren’t incredible but for 11 bucks I thought they were pretty decent. Calamari was rubbery as hell :confused:


Well it isn’t crab season yet but I’m hoping the warm weather is around the corner.

I had a nice crab stuffed lobster tail last week and I talked to my uncle today. He got a 210.00 box of Kings today at costco and hopefully I’m going to tank some down tomorrow.

Any good crab dishes folks?

I found this article interesting yet not too surprising. Blue claw meat is insane. Yes it is hard as hell to get but nothing is quite like it.

How man lbs was that?

(Tom T) #132

If it’s the same box I saw at Hazlet, it was a 10 lb box. They also had 10 lbs ofcold water tails for the same price. 5 tails in the box.

Anyone know what Restaurant Depot is getting for king crab…if they get them?

(Joon) #133

Uh hey… so you guys need any help with those crab legs?


Yes 10lbs. He said they are monsters so those jumbos do cost more.

Joon head on over!


We might cook some up tonight. We haven’t opened them up. We just got a few stripers. @tomt

Ponte Vecchio in Old Bridge had a good crab cocktail appetizer, but have not been there in a couple of years.

Nice. I’m jumping on a Brielle boat tomorrow for tog.


Sweet. What boat? Good luck Tom.

(Tom T) #139

Kenny is running open on the mimi. Figure I’ll give it a shot before it closes at the end of the month.

Edit:I guess it’s technically a Point boat

Soft Shell Crabs!

Other than Crab Shack by Mantalooking (and some Asian markets), are there any place where I can get good quality blue crabs (steamed or live)?
