Haha sorry to leave ya hanging guys, I'm still here! I would recommend sautéing in butter. They are pretty salty so a freshwater soak may help. Olive oil wasn't to nice

Re: Tuna Crab

Ok,
I tried them also and they are very much worth scooping! Buttered them up and used McKormick Montreal Steak seasoning for spice. Awsome! "You gotta try it."

Re: Tuna Crab

I asked my friend and she said that they ate the entire crab like a soft shell blue crab.

Re: Tuna Crab

Just had some super good live sushi style. Like sweet shrimp. Just watch the pinchers littler buggers can draw blood. Going to try and fry some tonight.
