Being the wife of a commericial fisherman, he often brought home not only lobsters, but blue crabs that got caught in the nets also. I always just steamed them and then picked out the meat. Mixed with a little mayo and some seasoning, made great sandwiches. By ripping out the body of the crab after they were cooked, you could use the crab shell instead of a scallop shell for a great presentation. The shells by being steamed, they are already cleaned for you. but you do have to be careful. they tend to have sharper edges than a scallop shell.

I asked Son #1 to pick me up a large piece of Haddock with the skin on. Now there are two foods that he HATES to handle. Liver and any kind of seafood. Including fish. So he brings me home a beautiful whole side of a Haddock. The kind my husband used to bring me. I look in the fridge. The fish is wrapped by the fish monger in butcher paper. But that is not enough for him. He grabbed a bunch of paper towels in the meat department and wraps the package in them, Then he gets a small bag from the register and places the whole thing in that. Now when he gets it home to my apartment, he takes my tongs and picks it up to place it in the fridge. He has done the same thing with any liver I buy. I did offer to cook him liver and fish for supper some night. He turned the offer down.

He also goes through these antics when I buy a bag of frozen shrimp. When we get to the register, he has a paper towel in hand and uses it to place the bag on the belt. I must declare some onth Seafood Month. I will have some sort of seafood every night.

Welll I thought I had an odd one here my youngest daughters DH cannot handle fish. He even has both the kids not liking it. I warned him not to say I don't like in front of them. Geez I fixed him though on Sunday I made the gorgonzola salad dressing and put a goodly amount of anchovy in it. He kept asking and I kept saying NO so he ate after I gave hime my version of the recipe leaving out the you know what!!! See we do win at times it sure is fun.

Oh Z that's a great idea. My sis eats no meat che has to watch fats and cholesterol so meats of any kind are no no. She loves the big ports stuff them with several other rooms and garlic and onion sauteed along with no fat cheese and parsly bet they would be great stuffed with crab.

I already had crabmeat on my grocery list, without an idea of how I'd make it yet. This will be perfect!
