Miso Butter Shrimp & Fresh Crabs

One of my new favorite recipes is Miso Butter Shrimp from the Steamy Kitchen.  So after getting lucky and finding six crabs in my trap I thought we’d have a seafood only dinner.  The shrimp recipe is super easy to make and I cook mine in a skillet with a little butter.  Throw it in with some pasta and you’re ready to go.  The tang/salty miso with the butter and sake make the shrimp almost irresistible!

As for the crabs, I use a mixture of water, apple cider vinegar, and beer to steam them followed with a generous coating of Old Bay.  You’ve got to watch those crabs as you put them into the pot to steam.  Turn you’re back for a minute and they’ll climb out and run across the counter like a bat out of hell.  Oh, and they can put up a heck of a fight as the scar on my hand will forever demonstrate.

Fresh crabs.  They sure look tasty!

Not very pretty are they? Good thing they taste good!

 

How about a video of some frisky crabs waiting to be cooked?
