Fresh Crabs Anyone?

Posted on

Just before having a lunch of excellent Halibut and Chips in the picturesque Nanaimo harbour, I noticed a woman bashing the hell out of crabs, apparently she was either really pissed off with them, her partner or this is how they clean the blasted things. Quite barbaric and grotesque to say the least, and they keep moving even AFTER they are split in half, mostly de-shelled, broken in half and had their disgusting guts chucked out in the water too! Tell you what, I won’t look at a crab cake the same ever again.

Enjoy this postcard from Nanaimo, BC, and bon appetit!

    I thought the warm bath treatment for lobsters was bad – but this is truly horrible!
