  1. Your black pepper crab looks very tasty. I didn’t know that about male crabs. I must keep it in mind for next time so that I sound like an experienced crab eater. 🙂 I love eating crab but we do not have good crab here in New Zealand. Otherwise I would try and cook it myself. In only really eat crab when I travel to Asia.

    Do you serve anything on the side?
