Alright friends and fiends...it's Dungeness season on the West Coast and I bought a big old fat one from a very reliable purveyor. I was a bit concerned because when it was pulled out of the tank and I poked him he barely wiggled his claws. Then I got him home and in under an hour he was in the steam bath. Usually I expect crabs to try and fight their way out. This one barely twitched. So now I'm cooking something else for dinner and trying to decide if I can still use his sorry carcass which I will pick and refrigerate. Thoughts?
