(if I had misspelled the last word, I would have written Mother Nature is Wired, and it would still make sense---)
I tried a new food last week. This is what it looked like frozen:
Any ideas what this could be? These little suckers have sat in my freezer for a couple months now. I live in an area where people make a living fishing commercially. One of my friends at work, her father (Daddy) fishes and caught these suckers.
It is the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Hands down.
Ladies and Germs, I present to you the soft shell crab:
The Wikipedia definition of a soft shell crab is "a culinary term for crabs which have recently molted their old exoskeleton and are still soft." (Blech!) The key word for me is "MOLT." I remember when Taylor babysat the class tarantula and it molted. Again, BLECH.
Anyway, soft shell crab sandwiches are very popular down here, so we gave it a whirl. Well, Tracy and Taylor did the work. I took the pictures and grossed out.
We fried up the poor little fellas in some hot oil and then ate them on a sandwich. Legs and all. You eat the whole thing. (well, you DO have to remove the DEAD MANS FINGERS before cooking)
My thoughts? Glad I tried it. But won't be trying it again any time soon. If ya know what I mean.
