It’s soft shell crab season and I just stocked up at Kim’s Fish Market on Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside. They are super fresh and only $4.99 for live crabs.
All you have to do it snip off their faces with kitchen scissors, pull out their lungs (AKA devil’s fingers), and yank off their aprons. I dredged them in chick pea flour (besan) from that amazing spice shop on 1st Ave in the East Village. After about three minutes on each side in a frying pan with some high smoke point oil, they were on my plate ready to be inhaled with a little bit of ponzu shōyu.
Dana’s Bakery, based in New Jersey, is having a 20% off sale for new customers and I am picking up my first order tomorrow. It was so hard to choose from the twelve flavors currently available! I’m really looking forward to this Fruity Pebbles one! I’ll let you know what they’re like tomorrow after I pick them up.
I was in Long Island City yesterday and stopped at Little Oven Bakery. They were kind of wiped out from a weekend’s worth of weddings but I was told that they’d have a clementine & pink pepper macaron available this week. I love pink peppercorns. I just hope that they don’t use chocolate filling like the do with the passion fruit one.
