ISO CRAB

montrealeater | Jun 1, 2012 03:38 PM

I'm looking for good (i.e. at least lump) crab in Montreal. Picked, ready to go, and hopefully fresh. Not sure if this exists here, or if it does, when. Also willing to try canned lump crab - I've tried all of the usual standard brands and the only one that was even OK was President's Choice, but ... yeah, it was still not great. Any fishmongers or ethnic stores out there that can help me? I'm willing to try any preservation method, but fresh is obviously the ideal.

*the reason I'm asking - Olive and Gourmando are doing a crab and shrimp salad right now that is so, so damned good I have literally had one every day for the past week. It's getting expensive! I would like to try to reproduce it. If anyone has tried it, ideas on how to recreate that lemony dressing are welcome.
