What Can Go Wrong

Living about as far as you can here in Siberia from an ocean, seafood is difficult to get. Yes, we have our own fish and crawdads, etc. but ocean stuff is hard to come by.
My wife learned long ago to let the masses pay over $30 bucks a pound for King Crab Legs. Just wait until after the holidays and they will always have a "stems and pieces" sale. She scored today. $9.99 a lb. for big fat chunks. Heck, I always break up those 2 and a half foot long big ones anyhow to fit them in the kettle.
Burp......we ate good tonight.

I will agree that you have to be choosey when you shop seafood this far from the oceans. But we do have plenty of specialty shops. They are just pricey due to the overnight shipping.

Oh, you're posting, nobody died from the crabs!

I'm glad you enjoyed a treat, Charlie. I eat them if they're blinking when we first meet.

Nobody usually dies from crabs.

Usually, they just give you lots of itching in your genital area, and can leave you feeling feverish, run-down, or irritable.

At least that's what I've heard...

We are close enough to a coast, but it's the dreaded Third Coast. We still have to pony up for the good stuff.

I wish someone would drop a few dozen pregnant Chesapeake Blue crabs in the marshes of Texas and Louisiana. We could enjoy pots of fresh caught steamed crabs all summer long here. That is one of the few things I miss about living in the DC area. Crabs, corn on the cob, beer... oh my! I feel a tingle running up my leg!

We have an invasive species of crawdads here. They are called 'Rusty Crayfish'. We now have trappers that ship them to of all places New Orleans. They are better tasting than the ones from the bayous.

Crawdads from clean water taste much better than ones harvested from America's drain field, New Orleans.

Yep! We even eat the carp here. This area is the headwaters. 5 miles north of me is The divide. When you piss on a hill there, half goes to New Orleans and the other half goes out the St. Lawrence seaway. Can't get any cleaner than this!
