A friend's neighbour is a fisherman who is finding things difficult at the moment as he is unable to sell his catch through the usual channels, for obvious reasons.
This week he was able to take advantage of the good weather to go out on his boat and harvest crabs.
We bought six and our friend very kindly offered to dress them for us (a messy and fiddly job).
She and her partner dropped off the prepared crab at the top of our drive, in a plastic cool bag, and collected the money we had left there in a jar. We were able to have a distance chat for a couple of minutes. It was good to see them again.
I have separated out the crab meat into four individual plastic takeaway tubs and these are now in the freezer.
Not bad value for £14 .
Mmm fresh crab ready to go. Delicious. Perks of living on an island and knowing a fishermanReplyDelete
And having a very kind and generous friend who does all the messy stuff for us!Delete
Ooh fresh crab, not had that for ages, I must remedy that. Thanks for the reminder, and enjoy yours :)ReplyDelete
It's one of my favourites. We can see the fishing boats from our window so not too many food miles!Delete
Lucky you - wish I lived near - I adore crab.ReplyDelete
Especially freshly caught and prepared.Delete
We only eat fish in batter from the local chipoyle in town. I have much sympathy for your friend fisherman neighbour. They've stopped carboot sales and markets and I can't sell my plants or satisfy my inner Womble and buy stuff. They don't shut the supermarkets though.ReplyDelete
Perhaps you could start selling plants online - set up your own website!Delete
I have thought about it JayCee. But my plants are that cheap it wouldn't be worth it. Good idea though. Thanks.ReplyDelete
What did your friend dress the crabs in? I am guessing hoodies and jogging bottoms.ReplyDelete
Hoodies and jogging bottoms?? This is not Sheffield YP!Delete
lucky you.... wish I had some!ReplyDelete
We shall be having some of it tonight. I am looking forward to it :)Delete
Lovely, I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
