Here on the West Coast, Dungeness crab season is well under way. The crab season peaks at the start in December and runs through June. Here are more Dungeness Crab Season Facts.
Some people lament on how dry Dungeness crab meat can be, but they may not be doing it right. I’ve experimented with cooking live crab at home and I found the perfect method to yield totally cooked but very juicy meat. I prepared crab for a picnic party of 10 and made dipping sauces. The crab meat was so good on its own that no one used the sauces!
