    What a great meal for spring/summer. Hardly have to “cook” anything, but how gorgeous and flavorful.

    I’m a sushi wimp, too. I love Japanese food, except for anything raw. So I order just about anything except sushi and sashimi. This salad looks like a winner to me.

    My favourite way to eat crab is in crab cakes.

    I also like crab salad sandwiches – similar to chicken salad sandwiches, only with crab.

    What about omeletes with crab?

    I remember walking the streets in Jamaica and collecting crabs as they crossed the road and putting back the females. The thought of the crabs in the bucket is too reminiscent of the movie Alien..throw them in the pot quickly!!

    That salad looks so delicious! While I love the raw fish, I have no qualms with eating a well-made California roll. If I ever get my hands on some fresh fresh crab I’ll definitely make this. Also, to comment on Laurie’s comment, my grandmother used to make the BEST crab omelets with the leftover crab after a big crab dinner. She’d sit for an hour picking apart the bodies for the sweet meat but after all the hard work it was truly a treat. Lots of crab and a little egg go a long way in the belly!

    What a great idea for an excess of crab….. a problem with I hope to have sometime in my life. Haha… and yes, I feel weird having just typed that :)

    Oooh yes! This was one of the best omelettes I’ve ever eaten – made with leftover crab and artichoke dip – YUM! http://dinnerwithjulie.com/2008/11/25/day-330-crab-spinach-and-artichoke-omelets/

    gout sucks, but yeah, having an excess of crabs is something that probably will inspire a little hatred. Crab would also be so great in risotto, a seafood pot pie, and–my hatred is rising even as I say this–mac and cheese.

    MAC AND CHEESE!! Why didn’t I think of that?? I have a ton of cheese to use up, too. Damn. We pulled the trap up in preparation to leave, but may have to drop it again…

    I love sushi, and ALL sushi (I’m the one eating the roe and eel and octopus and everything else)… but I’m pregnant! So no raw fish for a while… this post is killing me with sushi cravings. However, crab is ok to eat and I love avocadoes, so I may have this make this soon…!

    “(Make sure your husband gets rid of all the bits of shell when he picks out the meat.)”

    That cracked me up. So matter-of-factly informing the husbands that they’re to do the annoying part of the crab preparation :)

    Hmm….too much of any kind of seafood…is that possible?

    Not good for Mike or the waistline, but isn’t that what vacation is for? Besides, how cool is it that you are catching your own crab?!

    Oh, Sharlene, I was afraid it would be that good. Darn. Now I’ll be forced to get some crab and try it. Life on the left coast is so hard!! ;)

    Julie, get Mike to eat cherries, canned, frozen, juice etc. Can’t really remember why – duh -but they are great for gout. This really works.

    I made a “deconstructed” sushi dish myself, thinking I was the only one and it’s great to someone post a “deconstructed” recipe! Keep the “deconstructed” recipes coming!

    Excellent idea! I love the comment about having your husband pick the meat out of the shells! Mike’s the greatest. You are truly a lucky woman.
