    About a week ago I asked my wife of 35 years what she wanted for Christmas. We have gotten to the point where it's hard to suprise each other any more... She said how about we go out and get a real nice lobster or crab dinner?

    I thought this was a pretty good idea as we both love seafood. Then I had a real brainstorm...why not get some real Alaskan King crablegs and fix Janet a feast at home.

    I called the folks at Kasilof's seafood in AK and had some King crab legs sent down. Now folks I'm telling you it does not get any better than this! The manager there is a trapshooter and will take real good care of you. I cooked (heated) up the already cooked crab legs and what a treat. I could only eat one leg! It had to weigh in at a pound! Sweet and tender as it could be. Not only a great meal I got some serious brownie points as well and suprised my wife!

    Might be an idea for you and yours for New Years or that special occaision.

    The link to their website is above, but I called the 800 number and ordered over the phone.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Ever try sweet, succulent, Oregon Dungeness Crab? I believe it is the best tasting and eating crab there is.

    Bob I'm glad you enjoyed the King Crab. When I was a kid we would go to Homer this time of year and buy them from the fishermen for $5 each and come home and build a fire in the yard and boil them then throw them in the snow to cool. Then eat until you couldn't eat anymore. Hope to meet you one day.

    Seafood for Christmas is a great idea. My family and I dined on fresh blue point oysters on the half shell, Cajun shrimp stew, steamed king crabs and all the trappins…. Yum, Yum!

    I like all crab. But I must say Washington Dungeness is my favorite. I'm sure Oregon Dungies taste just as good! I just had some Dungies yesterday! That sounds like a great Christmas presant!

    Penicillin won't help crabs .... butter and salt for the King variety.

    Well they have some crabs, just not the big ones. But I don't care if they are pretty. I ordered the pieces. They will fit into my freezer easier!

    Sorry bigbore, but we will have them back in stock next week. Christmas sales wiped out our inventory.

    ok guys drool over this. Had a nice 3 3/4 pound ,lobster the other night right from the local grocery store. price 9 bucks a pound. wow was it good. no butter it kills the flavor. Put about 2 inches of water in a big pot and about a tablespoon of old bay. boil the waster and throw in the lobster for about 7 minutes for the first pound and 3 minutes for each added pound. dinner was great. Also costco around here has dungness crab in the spring and summer for 3.50 a pound. great eating. Happy holidays motordoc

    If you ever get the urge to cook live Maine lobster...yes, you can get them shipped to you. I worked at a fancy restaurant in my teens and the chef there used to cook them like this:

    Get a large flat pan about 4 - 5 inches deep (Like a turkey pan.) and fill it 1/2 way with water.

    Pour in 2 quarts of the cheapest white (or any other color) wine you can get.

    Drop the lobster(s) in the pan and wait.

    In about 5 minutes you will have the drunkest lobsters in town!

    When you drop them into boiling water they are so relaxed they don't even know they are being cooked and the meat stays nice and tender. I guess it sort of anesthetises them.
