Pea crabs?

Boston_Otter | Feb 10, 2015 12:25 PM

I recently picked up some Wellfleet oysters for a party, and on opening them, was horrified to see tiny little translucent crabs -- wiggling around, alive -- in nearly every one. I was about to throw the whole batch out when a friend googled around and discovered that they're called "pea crabs" and are considered a delicacy!

Has anyone cooked these, or eaten them?
