I finally tried the Rock Crab!
I ate it with only "Old Bay" seasoning and melted butter as a dip.
It was as sweet as "Snow Crab" "King Crab" or "Blue Crab", but much stronger in flavor than any of them. The crab flavor was outstanding!
However, the quantity of meat in relation to trash was much worse than any other type. The claw meat was the same in difficulty and easy to eat. Only the meat in the largest of the leg sections was worth picking, and the meat that is within the cluster itself was much more difficult to pick, and the small pockets were hard to open without crushing them.
All in all:
Claw meat, ease of eating: 100%
Leg meat, ease of eating: 50%
Cluster meat, ease of eating: 10%
I doubt I'll ever eat this type of crab again. It's simply not worth the effort in the outcome of meat vs. work to get it.
My favorite crab is Blue crab for flavor, King crab of ease of eating. I can catch my own Blue crab easily, and King Crab is out of my price range.
An end to another food experiment!
