Fresh Crab

Living on the West Coast definitely has its advantages.  Who would argue, we have milder temperatures, oceans, beaches, mountains, forests, literally the most beautiful outdoors in our backyard. So when my son came home from pulling up crab traps and hands me fresh crab, its hard not get excited.  Fresh crab comes with a celebratory meal, worthy of pulling a chair up to the table, it’s decadence at its finest.  We decided to use our crab for breakfast, absolutely delicious and so simple to make.

1 Dungeness Crab (cooked)

2 slices of Bread, (I like Silver Hill’s sprouted bread)

two eggs


Crack one Dungeness Crab, drizzle a little butter over the meat and set aside.  In the meantime poach two eggs.  Pop your bread in the toaster and voilà, you’re ready to assemble.  Toast on the bottom, add your fresh buttered crab meat, use all of it, pile it on, then top with your poached egg, a little salt and pepper and lastly, another drizzle of butter.  It doesn’t get much better than this.  makes two servings.

It’s meals like this that make me appreciate where I live and how lucky I am to have all of this beauty in my backyard.
