Blue crabs are the deal down in VA. Big fucking mess, the whole family gets together, newspaper gets spread on a table, and everybody goes to town. In my opinion, shrimp are the better effort-intensive meal. However, a nice crabcake or fried up softshell crab are better than shrimp. This thread makes me happy to be going home to see my family for the 4thWhat type of crab? I'm only used to brown crabs. Tasty bastards.
Hey, you figured it out!Tastes like it should be good with fried seafood.
I also hit the official website and saw an image of crabs caked in it: wtf, is that real? Do you get new kidneys if you save up enough labels?Hey, you figured it out!
I am sure you've already read the wiki article and know this, but Old Bay was originally sold by a ferry/shipping company and thus was always associated with crabs and shrimp and such. Seafood is what it belongs on but these days people will settle for french fries, potato chips and sometimes chicky nugs.
Fuck old bay and the states where they put it on everything.
I'm looking at you Maryland.
Unlove for Maryland detected. Hopefully some Marylanders will weigh in with some bold rebukes?I use it on chicken and duck
Also, fuck Maryland
