Oh yeah fair oaks mall. It was something like $22 for the buffet, personally I'd rather just go sit down and get a few rolls I like and be just as full.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact it takes $100 in sushi for me to be satisfied.

The "Hibachi" chain down in that area has all you can eat made to order thats pretty good too.

There are some 'all you can eat sushi places that are respectable, but its more like 'sushi chef makes it fresh and you can eat as much as you can in a fixed time limit'. That's one of the few times where I consider it decent to eat. Otherwise I just pay the premium for good sushi.

Altho there is a place that just opened up near me called Sushi Stop, that makes ok sushi, but its making gangbusters business because all dishes including sushi and non are only $2.75

Nope, they're often doing the same thing w their own cameras or cell phones.

With the foodblogger and yelp culture, its so common here nobody even notices the photography.

You go to one end, place the line on an arm sticking off of the boat, let the boat's motor idle while you steer towards the other buoy. Some people are skilled enough to drive the boat and net the crabs coming up on the line, but we usually go out in pairs.

A few years ago, my cousin was netting the crabs while I was driving. The crabs will often get stuck in the metal net while the baits continually come to the surface. You have to slam the net into the container or whatever you are using to store the crabs for sorting in order to get them out of the net, otherwise you can miss an upcoming crab. My cousin slammed a crab down on the boat a bit too hard, and it split in half, and... well, the scene from cast away is pretty accurate for blue crabs. The only things solid were the lungs/organs. The flesh and other stuff that people would normally eat is mostly liquid, more so than a raw oyster.
Yep-as a seafood clerk, I've snipped many faces of live soft-shell crabs off with a pair of scissors. Ain't much else in there but stuff the consistency of snot. But they supposidely get yummy after you fry them up.

This crabmeat lover on this forum seems to sum up his thoughts on crab eating pretty well

Quote:
There is something else that you should consider. Crabs are nasty. They live in the mud, or the sand or whatever and they eat dead stuff. Their shells, by their very nature, are giant piles of infection waiting to happen. They are delicious, but I wouldn't eat raw crab on a bet.

One of the things that you are doing when you heave a crab in boiling liquid is sterilizing, to a degree, the shell. The chances of getting a painful infection from little crab cuts are a zillion times lower with a cooked crab than a live one.

Alarmist? Nope. I live on the Gulf of Mexico.I have a couple of neighbors who make their living catching crabs and shrimp. They asked me, "why the hell would you want to do that? Why not cook them? The meats easier to get out and beisdes, crabmeat is too mushy to get out in any real pieces until you cook them somehow."

I know crabs. I catch crabs, boil them, and eat them. I love crabs. But I would not reccomend fooling around with ones that have not been cooked in some way. I am sure that somebody somewhere does it, but if they do it long enough they will eventually find themselves eating antibiotics and wishing that their fingers would go back down to normal size.

Of course, I am talking about Blue Crabs here, but I suppose this would be more or less true for all of them-but maybe not.

Seems to fall in line what most ppl in this thread are saying.

It's not about them being bottom feeders, or them living in "dirty" water, or getting diarrhea for a few days...it's about PARASITES.
There are TONS of parasites that use crabs and snails as intermediate hosts in their life cycles, and by eating any of these creatures raw you are taking a huge risk. You might not even have symptoms for years, until you are coughing up blood and pulling worms out of your ass.
I don't know the statistics in the US, but something like 80% of crabs in Asia are infected with some type of parasite.
No thanks.

the important question isn't whether or not it has parasites, it's whether or not those parasites can live in you.

Many of them can, yes (ie. P. westermani).
And often times, the fact that a human is not their intended host makes it even worse, because they migrate around "looking" for where they are supposed to be and wreak havoc on your body.

Like so:

Diners Eat Raw Crabs on Dare, Get Sick


The Associated Press reports that eight diners who came down with a rare lung infection after eating raw shellfish consumed live sawagani crabs on a dare, health officials said Friday.

Health investigators said the crabs, which are usually served fried, were eaten at various restaurants including Riptide Rockin' Sushi & Teppan Grill in Mission Viejo and Chomp Rockin' Sushi & Teppan Grill in Fullerton.

Both restaurants are owned by Dan Lauriano who has said some diners apparently started a tradition where they would reach into a jar of live crabs and devour them raw as their friends cheered them on.

The results were not pretty, and after some of his patrons became sick the owner stopped ordering the crabs from the distributor.

Six to 10 weeks after they downed the crabs, participants ended up with a parasite carried by the crab that migrates from the intestines to the lungs and causes lung fluke infection.

Symptoms, which can take as long as 10 weeks to surface, include coughing, diarrhea, breathing problems, abdominal pain, fever and hives.

You sure he wasn't referring to Surimi, the fake crab stick that is actually made out of fish? Because that's the 'crab' that's usually in sushi.

Google: salmon nematodes

I see FAR more worms in saltwater white fish than I ever do in salmon. Nearly every lingcod/black cod we catch has them. Halibut is a bit more rare though.

You can eat any of these raw if you check for worms first, but all fish should be frozen first. Honestly, I find it slices much easier and has a slightly milder taste after freezing.
