Note: The latest post about the Richmond Public Market is of February 2011 and is found on this link.
For some reason, I am thinking of seafood – specifically smelt and crabs. So, I went to the Richmond Public Market because their food is so cheap. I like smelt especially the ones with roes. I’ve Suanne to make it at home but we just can’t find such smelt (with roes). Anyone knows where to get them? I see a lot of smelt in the supermarket selling frozen smelt but they all are not pregnant.
I also got myself some crabs — salt and pepper crabs. Each dish costs $6. It looks good but there’s very little meat and is a bit too dry on some part.
You know, we can cook crabs ourselves but it’s just that we have never cut up a live crab before. Suanne don’t mind cooking and she had some recipes at hand too but her condition is that I do the killing. Can someone tell me what is the proper way to cut up a live crab?
