That looks delicious. I love crab. Unfortunately I am terrible at cooking. Can just about use the microwave, am scared of the stove/oven. Had too many mishaps with forgetting things are in it. Even cooking something like a steak I seem to under or over do it.

Had frogs legs the other day, get them from the fishmonger. BTW they don't have the skin on. They're like really succulent chicken wings, without the skin. Got a fantastic fishmonger here. Prawns from tiny shrimps to the size of a small lobster. 3 types of crab, all sorts of shellfish. Along with all sorts of fish from cod to dover-sole and halibut. Anyone else like shellfish?

Edit: BTW did you actually use crab? If I tried to make it I'd probably stumble at the stage after cracking open the crab, at which point i'd just eat the crab:-)

Use canned crab (lump/shredded, whatever you prefer) as you are going to mix it in cream cheese, a little green onion. salt, pepper and sugar. Save some of the crab juice in the can for extra flavoring. Wrap that mix in wonton wrappers and fry in peanut oil. Dip in a hot pepper sauce. Fairly easy and cheap to make. Yummy.

Oof.. I wish I could get proper crab where I live. When we where visiting my wife's grandmother in California some years ago we went up the coast and ended up at a place called Barbara's Fish Trap in Half Moon Bay. Had a great blue crab sandwich there. The only way to get crab here is by ordering frozen one's on the internet but they are very expensive. I got some canned crab from the supermarket a while ago and it was atroscious. Maybe a shopping trip to France or Belgium could solve this one...

Anyway, I'm having just some regular black filter coffee at my desk right now and a fresh pain au chocolat from a nearby French bakery. Very good stuff.

Canned crab is good for recipes that involve mixtures like Crab Rangoon. I think of it like a concentrate. Take anchovy paste for instance. Normally you would not squirt that on your tongue directly unless you like a super strong dead fish taste. Yet, if you stick anchovy paste in a salad it brings out the flavors of all the vegetables like in a Caesar salad. It definitely is not for eating straight out of the can imo. Although, I am sure some people like it. Using fresh crab for Crab Rangoon usually will result in a recipe that just tastes like cream cheese since fresh crab is so mild in taste. Everything has its place if used properly. I've been to Half Moon Bay. Nice area. Just south of one of my favorite California beaches to watch surfers, Pacifica State Beach. Can't beat the coastal towns for fresh seafood.

Hmmm... thanks, that makes a lot of sense. I do love anchovies but I use whole filets and I spend a bit more on them because I think that the expensive ones somehow taste better. But they definitely are a concentrate or flavouring rather than something you eat straight (except on pizza, obviously).

Speaking of anchovies, yesterday I made Spaghetti alla puttanesca and, man, do I love that stuff. I use kalamata olives and capers, which I fry in the pan until they get some colour before adding the anchovies, garlic and herbes de provence. The power move, I recently discovered, is pouring some of the kalamata olive brine into the sauce after you add the tomatoes.

I actually started using the paste on pizza as well when I got enough of those tiny razor sharp bones stuck in my throat.

When life gives you lemons, make traditional lemon curd

My daughter and I did just this + scones and whipped cream, was a hit. Must have been a good year for lemons around here, people are leaving boxes of them out the front of their house with "please take me" signs 😁

Awesome, I'm salivating. ... just gotta cross my fingers that commercial lemon growing areas had similar luck and I can pick up a bag at the grocery store cheap in a while to make some myself.

And then a German inspired thing. BBQ Frankfurters, wrapped in bacon and baked in the oven. Both normal ketchup and curry ketchup on top.

I prefer an Ale with licourise. One that is a bit sweet and have a red'ish brown color to it. 😀

EDIT:
This is my favorite beer... (photo from stock-photos from the web)

It is so good, that you can drink it on it's own. Drink it to all type of food except sea food and you can drink it to get drunk.

Not available in Sweden it seems.. 😒

You just have to get across the border and visit a Fakta. That shop carry this brand. I will write the next in Danish.

Det er en øl fra Fyn, og jeg er faldet over lige dette mærke som det bedste allround.
Men hold dig fra deres lager, den smager ikke godt. Labelen ligner til forveksling, så pas på.
Deres jule ale var helt fænomenal og i top. Lidt mere bær/frugt og sødme og stærkere. 😉

Or you can buy the beer here, if you can not get it in any other way....
The price is 6,75 DKR above price in the shops. The bad part is that I can not find any shipping info, and I don't know about import fee.

Ah yes, in German class at school it was drummed into us that it was absolutely vital for the safety of our tastebuds that we never just asked for soße in Germany and environs, otherwise we would likely be subjected to curry sauce. Always, always ask mit tomaten ketchup just to be sure, we were warned. 🤣

Since we're headed for Autumn here in central Europe, I'm eating seasonally appropriate Aachener Printen. This is a type of gingerbread seasoned with "a variety of ingredients including cinnamon, aniseed, clove, cardamom, coriander, allspice and also ginger", however, the English Wikipedia article fails to mention what I find is pretty much universally true for the store-bought kind of Printen: they contain chunks of brown rock candy.

These are not only delightful on their own (with coffee or tea) but are also used to season the marinade for Rhenish Sauerbraten and provide the sweet/spicy counterpoint to the marinade's redwine/vinegar base.

One of my great weaknesses is German food. I just love it. There is this tiny German restaurant I would go to in my hometown and the super nice German lady who owned it would make this amazing homemade plum cake. I could get very fat eating that so I never learned the recipe. 🤣
