Small bites ~ Crab

This week for Sunday's Small Bites our challenge is Crab.

I love crab cakes, I am looking forward to some fabulous crab dips, hopefully a tasting of crab ravioli. You can see that crab can be so versatile. Out of all of these choices; I decided to go with a family favorite...
Fried Crab Claws
I have posted a recipe for fried crab claws before, but this time I actually used our Seafood Batter Mix. This batter mix is spiced up with a little cayenne... but not to much. It makes the best crab claws north of the gulf coast. The only thing that can improve these is a little ocean breeze.~ We ate our share of crab claws while at the beach last month. For those of you who don't know... and apparently there are some... there is an art to eating the crab claw. There is a hard cartilage in the center; scrape this along your teeth and you will have a plate of these. Ya'll don't just pop them in your mouth like a popcorn shrimp! Now, let's see what appetizers we get from the other 'nibblers'. Leave your link on Mr Mcklinky.
Y'all enjoy!

Those look really good. I don't think we can get crab claws here. Just giant crab legs. I've eaten claws once, in Mississippi a long time ago.
