When it comes to recipes, do you have a pet peeve? I have two. Okay, maybe more than two, but two that come to mind immediately. The first is a list of ingredients, the order of ingredients. The second is additional information that needs you to be redirected to another site or another page in the book.
Another great suggestion for Labor Day. I don’t know about you, but our grill is going to be packed with all sorts of good eats. Yet some sweet, succulent crab legs would be such a welcome addition to the banquet table. When I saw this recipe, I knew in an instant that it would be perfect.
A little oil for grilling, some lemon wedges as a garnish and the legs. Enjoying crab legs doesn’t get much simpler than this. But then again, we could complicate things with Compounded Butter. But that’s just an optional thing.
I guess it’s all these photos I’ve been sharing lately of our recent Holiday Vacation to the Pacific Northwest that has my mind occupied with bounties from the sea. Okay, so these Crab Legs actually hail from Alaska. While it might be a stretch, Alaska is about as far North as you can get. And I love the Pacific Northwest.
Since just before Thanksgiving, our local Costco has had a seafood and meat case in the middle of the fresh food section. It looks like those cases in the old-time butcher stores, with offerings behind glass and an apron-clad clerk waiting to take your order. The steaks and roasts in the cases are enormous! You know those Cowboy Cut Rib Eye Steaks that were making the rounds on the cooking shows a while back, but you couldn’t seem to find them at your local grocery store? Yep, they got them! One steak will feed an entire family. And those big steaks come with an equally big price tag. While the presentation is on a grand scale, you are paying a good deal of money for a handle bone that you cannot eat. Did I want to buy one? You bet. However; I just could not justify the cost.
