Dungeness Crab

My dad is here from my hometown of Marietta, Georgia. Of course much of our visiting revolves around food, and today was no exception. After an excellent lunch at Chuys, we took a leisurely tour of Central Market. I especially wanted him to meet my favorite fishmonger, Mario. Wouldn't you know it... Mario was off today.

They had some beautiful seafood, especially some gorgeous halibut for *gasp* $18.99 a pound. Dad was attracted to the Dungeness crab, and at a much more reasonable $6.99 a pound, we decided to get this one to share as an appetizer while we cooked dinner tonight. It was excellent - sweet and delicious.

Halibut is in the high point of it's season...you'd think it would more plentiful & less expensive! Oh well, I'm sure the crab was delicious. I think I need to go see Mario for something yummy for the weekend.
