Hairy Crabs

My sister-in-law just posted this picture on FB. Oh, how tempting! Yeah, it’s the season for hairy crabs (big binding crab 大閘蟹 or Shanghai hairy crab or Chinese mitten crab) now. Look at the little fella Mr. Ryan, he looked a bit troubled, maybe a little scared. Why? Why scare of this hairy crab? He’s dead and he’s delicious!

Can’t remember when was the last time I had this yummy hairy crab. Probably back in year 2004? Oh, I envy my relatives who will be going to Hong Kong this winter, they can stuff themselves with the yummy hairy crabs.
