Have I missed King Crab season?

grandgourmand Jan 30, 2012 12:51 PM

In the past I used to make a few purchases of King Crab legs from Sobey's. They usually had good sale prices on them. But for some reason, I don't get a Sobey's flyer anymore and haven't noticed it in any of the other store flyers.

Have I missed it? The old internet just told me the season runs to the end of the Month, which is technically tomorrow.

        Here's a better picture. I totally lucked out, it was the only one of about 15 packages - somebody fell asleep at the wheel. .002 Kg? !!?!

        I spent the rest of my grocery shopping giggling to myself over my deal of a lifetime.
        Score one for the little guy!

            Let me guess, did you go to the self-checkout counter?

              No, I just picked the youngest looking cashier and crossed my fingers and toes. There isn't a self-checkout at this particular Metro - come to think of it, I don't think I've seen self scan at any Metro.

        T&T have live ones in their tank! A few other Chinese super markets like Foodie Mart also have them

          Does anyone know of any places in the GTA doing any king crab special dishes for the current season? I have a friend that has never had king crab and I am hopeless at cooking, so I'd like to take him out for a nice crab meal, and king crab is so yummy and impressive.

            If you are into Chinese cuisine, O'Mei on Hwy7 does a King Crab 3-4 ways. Steamed with Garlic and Scallions, Sauteed with house special sauce, Fried with spiced peppered salt and Tomale fried rice!
