If you dream about perfectly prepared crab cakes, steamed Dungeness straight from the shell, or lightly coated soft-shell blue crabs, this is your cookbook. Culinary expert Cynthia Nims offers 50 delicious ways to love crab–whether it’s Dungeness, Alaskan king, and snow crab from the West Coast or blue and stone crab from the East.
