Aw, come on, think of it as a land based King Crab.   Just another bug (our nickname for the Dungies we catch).

That aside, I hope that the west doesn't acquire a taste for it, that's a good way to ensure it's extinction.

Crabs (and lobsters) are simply a delivery vehicle for melted garlic butter.

And many of the fishies too.  And as far as I can tell, all French cooking.

Look at this thing I made yesterday. It's salmon that's been sort of poached in butter but I got the skin on the bottom all crispy-brown.  The avocado and capers are my new favorite thing.

Better eat them while guam aint a radioactive wasteland because as soon as war with china/china invades taiwan kicks off, Guam will be nuked within the first hour.

I heard that coconut crab tastes like buttery coconut.

I have also heard that it is illegal to transport coconut crab off-island, and the meat goes rancid very fast, so the only way to enjoy coconut crab is to fly/sail out there and get it yourself.

Yes. This video is relevant to the article, if at the end of cooking the eggs you add diced crab meat.

They are really large hermit crabs, that live on land.

I thought they were also mildly toxic? Not severely, but enough to not eat them too often.

Crabs are decapodes. Deca for ten. As in ten legs.

I mean, most foods the west acquires a taste for get factory farmed.

They are also really endangered in the Marshall Islands because they are eaten too young.  The meat is sweet with hints of doomed aviatrix.

Six legs, sure. Close enough for government work.

With so many species going extinct our turn will come and when we are gone all these animals and plants will get a chance to live without fear, except being eaten by another animal. Of all the species humans are the most destructive.  We sure farked up.

They have no natural predators except for humans and other crabs.  Cannibalism.
