Have you ever eaten crab before, what about snow crabs, or any crab in that matter? They are one of the best nutritional foods available on the market for anyone on a diet or wanting to lose weight. Snow crabs are probably one of the most delicious crabs you can find on a menu and you have the fishermen to thank for that. If you like crab in general and you haven’t yet tasted a snow crab then you really don’t know what you’re missing out on.
What about snow crab legs? Have you ever tackled a plate of snow crab legs? If not then you’d best brush up a little. What happens if you bring a nice lady friend out to a nice restaurant and she fancies the crab legs? If you don’t know how to eat them all you’re going to do is make a fool of yourself. It’s not as difficult as you might think. That’s the great thing about crabs. There’s no special formula or sequence of events you have to follow. All you really need is a nutcracker and you’re half way there.
A good restaurant will always provide this tool for you so I wouldn’t worry too much if you don’t bring one with you. I mean…who would think of bringing a nutcracker to a restaurant anyway? I certainly wouldn’t and I doubt there’d be many people out there who think differently. OK. So you’re sitting at the table and the crab is sitting in front of you…preferably dead. What do you do? The first thing, believe it or not, is to let it cool. You risk looking like a fool is you try to crack it open right away. Using the cracker that should have been provided for you, all you need to do is place is close to where the claw is and clamp it down. Peel the cracked shell away to expose the meat inside. You’re done. Easy wasn’t it? For thinner crab legs you might not even need a nutcracker. You should be able to do it with your hands.Different restaurants can serve the crab legs in different ways. Some are served steamed along with a sauce. You can eat them with rice or salad or both. It doesn’t really matter. It’s totally up to you. If you’re a lover of crab meat then it won’t bother you how it’s served but everyone’s different. I’ve tasted a lot of different kinds of crab and snow crab has to be up there among the finest. Some are dry and some are tasteless but you might think differently. I’ve been to a lot of restaurants. Some good and some not so good. All I can say is, choose you’re restaurant wisely. Check out their reputation. A restaurant can make a reputation for itself based on once dish.
