Cold meals

Its been in the high 90 degree range here in the DC area the last couple of days.  So a nice cold dinner seemed fitting.  Cold food is really nothing new to me.  I love cold food.  One of my favorite foods is vichyssoise, cold leek potato soup.  And I have been known to abstain from heating up left overs. 

I chose refreshing king crab leg clusters and a nice cold salad for dinner yesterday.

To the victor goes the spoils

The best technique for getting the meat out of king crab legs- wrap a claw or leg in a kitchen rag.  Hit the top of the rag with a hammer or the handle of a pair of scissors.  Peel the shell off and enjoy.  I like mine with lemon butter. 


  1. OMG sooooo good. I haven't ever bought crab legs to eat at home but this is a great idea.
