  2. Would you care to post the recipe for the mussels?

  3. Hi Bob - Sure, there isn't so much a recipe. We take any brothy sauce we like and put the scrubbed mussels in a wide pan with lid, add the sauce and simmer the two until the mussels all open. In the case of the marinara, I dumped half a jar of Paul Newman marinara on cleaned mussels, simmered for less than 10 min and that's it. We have used tom yum soup as the broth, or wine and garlic and butter. Anything that will steam/simmer/boil the mussels enough to open. Livie

  4. Yuuummmmmm!! What kind of crabs do you catch up there? They look big-- are they king crabs?

  5. We caught both, rock and dungeness kind. King crabs are further North. Some people will argue that dungeness are the best, but we both like rocks crab's claws better.
