Northwest holiday gatherings are extra special with a pile of meat-filled Dungeness crab, lots of butter and lemon, and a big green salad. They are sweet and delicate in flavor and easy to share with a big group or all by yourself! We are just getting Dungeness from San Francisco and the Oregon crab should be in the market mid-December. They had a late molt and have been slow to fatten up, but we expect them to be plump and ready for the holidays. Did you know that Dungeness crabs molt about 12 times by the age of two, and then once a year through the age of six? They shed their shell and a larger one is formed in its place.
We suggest you call the market and pre-order for your holiday meal.
