I need a good ole' fashioned crab/shellfish smashing meal. You know the kind where you hold a rock, where a big and pound the delicious flesh out of some delicious crustaceans, but where can I find that?!?! HELP!
Brian Leitner, co-owner of Nettie’s Crab Shack, shares the right and wrong ways to eat Dungeness crab. Leitner has watched customers do many wrong things: leave the best bits behind in the body, avoid the crab butter (a delicacy for some), and crack the shell into the meat. He wants us to do the right things: use the mallet to gently crack the body, use the tip of the claw as a digging tool, and always get the hidden meat out. (Also check out CHOW's recipe for Basic Steamed Dungeness Crab.)

Lightly charring the lemon slices intensifies their flavor and creates a gorgeous look for this delicious chicken dinner. Be sure to include any of the sweet, tangy liquid the lemons give off in the bowl; it adds incredible depth to the sauce.
