The Boiling Crab Wait Is Well Worth The Prize

We are still enjoying the seafood season as the crawfish continue to grow larger, and the crabs are ever so sweet. Boiling Crab in Dallas near Garland seems to always be busy with lines starting at least thirty minutes before opening, and on super nice days as much as an hour with guests toting lawn chairs and sipping mystery drinks as they eagerly await a mess of crawfish, a myriad of crabs, shrimp and even lobster steamed in a bag packed full of seasoning.

A recent visit for dinner netted some great finds included what they called fried octopus, which gave us odd visions of a heavy battered fish. Instead, we found the dish to be light with a crispy sautee, punctuated with chunks of onion and tomato. This dish fell supreme on our palate.   Continue reading

There is no doubt that the people at Crave enjoy great seafood, and what a marvelous time of year to enjoy delicious creatures from the sea.
