After getting things wrapped up for Winter at our place in the Cariboo, we are now up in Prince Rupert, BC. Prince Rupert is just below the bottom of the Alaska Panhandle – I think we are about 30 miles from Alaska here. The town is going through a boom, with many new resource based projects being announced.
This time, there are two bonuses to being here. First, Graham isn’t working while we’re here and second, he has brought the boat up. So far he has been able to get out fishing a couple of times.
Today, when he went out, he dropped the crab pot and carried on to another spot to fish for salmon. No salmon today, but we were in for a treat come dinner time tonight.
At this time, legal size for taking Dungeness Crab is six and a half inches. Graham ended up getting the limit, four male crabs per person per day.
Was dinner tonight delicious? Yes it was. Our first crab fest of the season is not usually a very balanced meal.
There are no greens on the table tonight…it’s just all crab. And homegrown garlic drowned in butter. And red wine.
Want to try a delicious Crab Chowder Recipe? Here’s one that Graham created and it is so tasty.
Here’s a crab recipe book that I am looking at. If Graham gets out every few days for fishing, he will also be throwing down the crab trap and I can expect more good harvests to be coming. If you have a favourite recipe using crab meat, let me know!
