I've got crabs!!
thought if i used the "gather round fellow gastronauts" opener one more time you'd lynch me!!
well,not crabs...a crab & what a beauty.it weighed in at well over 1.5 kilo's...pushing 4 lbs & i took the shots of it in my griddle pan & with my baguette for size comparison.a beautiful orkney crab from the crystal clear,deep & icy cold waters off the scottish coast.IMHO the finest crabs going.can't & won't take any credit for cooking it 'cos it was already cooked to perfection when i bought it.the claws were right on the point & there was tons of brown meat & coral(the brown meat & coral are the best bits imo)in the body shell.nothing fancy just crab,nut crackers,skewer for picking,crusty baguette & ice cold muscadet.life doesn't get much better....well it does...the crab was only £5!!
I spent a lot of money on booze,birds & fast cars.The rest I just squandered.
