Frank's Seafood delivered this weekend with some of the best crabs that I have ever eaten.
We hosted family and ate a half bushel of #1s with some corn and watermelon. It's a once-a-year event for us, so we want delicious crabs. Frank's delivered -- metaphorically. We called ahead for the $84 mix of mediums and larges, and I picked up a box filled to the brim and then covered with a newspaper from the Eastern Shore.
The crabs were an absolute feast. Heavy. Sweet. We ate for hours, and every hardshell came out tasting perfect. It was a great bookend to the Frank's purchase that started off my summer with crabcakes. Go grab a few dozen to end your summer right.
Frank's Seafood is the retail operation inside the Jessup wholesale seafood market. They sell Tuesday to Sunday. You need to check in at the entry gate, but retail buyers don't pay an entrance fee.
If you are going to Frank's, keep your eyes out for the scallops. I bought them again -- $9 for a half pound -- and they cooked up perfectly last night with just butter. And grab all the crab supplies if you need. We got mallets and hard plastic knives for $1 a head.
