    Dave, I'm thinking you should have changed your recipe around tonight and made salmon-stuffed crab instead.

    One of the joys of living in SE Alaska was the abundance of crab. I'm glad that you are bringing some home. I'm also glad the fishery supports a limited harvest. Let's keep it from going commercial for a while, eh.

    Nice bunch of crab. Too bad you have an illegal King salmon in the picture though.
