Preparing Live Kegani Crab

Two Kegani crabs that we ordered arrived from Hokkaido (we picked them up from our good friends’ restaurant) and we prepared some sashimi from the legs, and then steamed the rest. It was interesting (and a little painful) to cut up but they were delicious and I enjoyed the new experience. I’ve only had live crab once before, back in Osaka when I met Mariko’s dad for the first time. We went to a “sunakku” which is like a bar that also has food/snacks, and the owner prepared the crab in front of us.

Mariko and I watched this video beforehand, and simply mimicked what he did. It reminded me of the time we took an oyster-shucking class. It was messy, wet, and smelled like the ocean. I thought it was great! 😀 And the kegani crab tasted excellent, by the way.

I hope you had a nice day!
