I love shellfish, but how come the most expensive of them is, at least served au naturel, the most tasteless and boring of them all. Lobster may be regarded as the finest, but hey, give me crabs any day. Here’s a very nice way to serve crabs as a filling starter or lunch – Ted

krepsesuppe med butterdeiglokk_post

I’ve been catching freshwater crayfish from I was 6 years old and well up into my years as a grown man.

And beer and aquavit or white wine of course. But this recipe looks absolutely worth trying for a bit of change – Ted

Andreas Viestad (to the left in the thumbnail above) writes: The red king crab, or Kamchatka crab, is a new crab species to Norwegian waters.  The only parts eaten on the king crab are the muscles in the legs, whereas on the common crab, we also eat the meat inside the shell. This is a variant of shrimp cocktail made with crabmeat instead of shrimps.
