    I steamed crab tonight for dinner. Invited my neighbor over. She is 91 - and totally cool.

    I stared at the crab tomalley and hatched a plan. I scooped it out into beaten eggs, and made a fried rice. I added rehydrated dried scallops to up the seafoodness.

    whoa! I’ll try to show a pic of the leftover bowl tomorrow, bit it was delicious. Rich and smelled like the ocean. Even my neighbor was like, “what is that flavor?”
    It was delicious! Anyone else doing anything with the crab fat?

    Saving it to send to you to make the dish you described!

    That actually sounds quite good, will have to give that a try!

    It's the first thing I suck into my pie hole before even nibbling at the meat.

    My Favourite thing to make with it:

    Crabby Xiao Long Bau, basically the ultimate XLB, by adding steamed crab fat (in chinese its called crab paste)

    Bun Rieu, Crab Pho

    Fried rice (youve already done that)

    Crab omelette

    Crabby XLB with the crab roe are delicious!

    During dungeness season we steam crabs and make a simple vinaigrette in the top shell using the crab fat as emulsifier.
    Serve in the top shell for dipping cracked crab.

    Crab, crab fat, I'll take it all. I miss the fresh Dungeness when I was growing up in WA. We get them live here in Austin every once in a while, but its hard for me to pull the trigger.
