Lobster Versus Crab: The Epic Battle

By • June 25, 2014 • 1 Comment

We're hardly the first to pit lobsters against crabs, but this is a serious rivalry. Summer seafood isn't something to mess with, and not just because clawed creatures can be feisty in the kitchen (just ask Annie Hall). When you invite the ocean into your kitchen, you add the thrill of war to your meal. The counter and stovetop are the battlefields, the shellfish are the passionate opponents, and the competition between the two provides a whiff of excitement -- the kind that doesn't come in a spice bottle.

Choosing between crustaceans can get tricky, but who says you can't have them both in one sitting? Sure, they each have their claws, but on the inside, they're sweet.

This looks so good! Both are luxury food here, so not easy to buy. But I love lobster as well as crab!
