Re: Big crabs

BONJAY! these things are huge.  Never heard of them.  Ah wonder how they taste?  I am thinking they will be great as Curry Crab.  This is probably the sweetest dish out there, Curry King Crab.  Gosh they are good.

Re: Big crabs

They are protected on Guam now but they can be brought in from other islands.  I haven't tried it but people who have told me that it is good flavored crab meat.
