You’re going to have a hard time buying crab roe as only the males are sold commercially (and NO, I’m NOT kidding for a change!) During my stint at Yankee Lobster I once asked the dumb (to me, since it was easy to tell a male lobster from a female) question of how to tell a male from female crab. All the guys laughed….."THEY’RE ALL MALES!!" Yep, quite true. They throw the females back and since it’s illegal to harvest a female lobster with eggs, it might also be true for the crab industry. You’ll have to know someone with crab pots if you want females I do believe.
A nice cold glass of Vernors, a tie and those chaps, clothier, pretty please??
